WEST NYACK, NY – As Rockland’s sole open admission care center, Hi-Tor Animal Care Center (Hi-Tor) delivers a unique and fundamental service to the animals and people of the County. As they move along amid kitten season, a time of year when there is a dramatic increase in the birth of kittens, the community engagement from caring individuals becomes even more important.

The event will take place on Saturday, June 26 from 12:00pm to 4:00pm in the East Court on Level One near H&M. In addition, raffle tickets and Hi-Tor merchandise will be available for purchase.

Adoption applications can be filled out and submitted in advance of the event by visiting www.hitor.org.

“We’re happy to help Hi-Tor in their mission to find loving homes for these kittens and look forward to a successful event,” said Darrin Houseman, General Manager of Palisades Center.

“We are thrilled to partner with our friends at the Palisades Center for a very successful adoption event during this very busy kitten season,” said Debbie DiBernardo, President of Hi-Tor Animal Care Center. “As a progressive animal welfare organization with innovative footsteps, we recognize how important community partnerships are to meeting our mission, and this type of collaboration hugely embodies that.”

The day will start with free coffee at 10am. Everyone who shows up by 11:15am to the coffee area will receive a ticket for the special “Small Town, Big Heart” raffle and 20 people will win a $10 gift certificate to spend during the Fair at any vendor.

The Kidz Zone will include rides, crafts, local dancers, singers, karate demonstrations along with musical performances, and a live reptile show. Children can have an all-access pass for rides and bounce houses for $15 for the day or purchase tickets individually for $5.00 each.

The Nanuet Street Fair will also feature local bands on the main stage at Church Street, plenty of unique food purveyors, wine, beer, and dessert options. Nearly 200 vendors will be onsite selling clothing and jewelry, artwork, quality handmade crafts, along with many local businesses showcasing goods and services.

The car/jeep show will take place in front of the old firehouse on Prospect Street. People interested in showing their car can sign up that morning for $10 entry fee. First, second, and third place trophies will be given in both the car and jeep categories.

“It was a tough year and half for many residents and businesses, so we are thrilled to be able to bring back our Fair this year. We only host one Street Fair a year, so we want to make sure it’s memorable,” stated Jerry Tuchband, President of the Nanuet Chamber.

The bags are distributed to the first 500 families who stop by the Nanuet Chamber booth at Market Street.
