The City of St. Cloud and Pink Heals St. Cloud Charter have teamed up once again to celebrate Pinktoberfest on Saturday, Oct. 12th, so make plans to come to downtown St. Cloud and join the city to “paint the town pink”.

The event helps raise awareness and funds for the St. Cloud Charter of Pink Heals, a non-profit healthcare support group at a grass roots level that provides financial and emotional support for families battling cancer within the city, so all funds raised at the event will stay in St. Cloud

Experience Kissimmee and Duke’s Brewhouse present the event, which will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Centennial Park in the heart of downtown St. Cloud.

The free family event features health and wellness vendors, Cancer awareness supporters, a kids zone, and, the highlight of the event, the Pink Fire Truck pull contest, where teams of 10 compete to pull partially-loaded pink fire truck in the fastest time possible beginning at 1 p.m.

Interested in helping raise money by participating in the truck pull?

Each team will consist of a maximum of 10 people and can raise money by hosting fundraisers, individual pledges, and corporate sponsorships.

Deputy Fire Chief, Lisa Thompson said, “you’ll be pulling for a good cause. It’s to raise money for our citizens and residents of St. Cloud to help support them as they are fighting cancer.”

Darla Craig with St. Cloud Fire Rescue and c0-founder of the Pink Heals Chapter also shared, “We’ll have our Pink Fire Truck “Kris” at the event on October 12th. Kris was one of our first home visits back in 2016, and since she was our first home visit of someone going through cancer treatment, we decided to name the truck after her.”
