Apart from the run, the event will offer a wide range of family-friendly activities, including food and drinks, driving simulators, Easter bunny pictures, a giant obstacle course, rock wall climbing, face painting, first responders, classic cars, fun and games, Easter egg bingo, a Chic-fil-a cow, balloon artist, and prizes, among others.

The event will take place at the Walker County Annex in Downtown Huntsville, Texas, located at 1301 Sam Houston Avenue. Admission to the fair is free, making it an affordable day out for families.

The Peyton Irwin Foundation was established after Peyton Irwin was tragically killed by a distracted driver who was texting while driving. The foundation is dedicated to promoting safe driving practices and preventing similar accidents from happening.

Deanna Irwin, the director of the Peyton Irwin Foundation, is excited to see the community come together to support safe driving practices. She said, “We are thrilled to offer this event to our community, and we hope to spread awareness about the dangers of texting while driving. We want to encourage everyone to stay focused on the road and make safe decisions while behind the wheel.”

Overall, the “Driving Safety Fair Don’t Text & Drive 5K and Easter Fun” event promises to be a day of fun and education for the whole family. For more information, please visit the Peyton Irwin Foundation’s Facebook page at
