Touch a truck - the kids love this kind of thing.

Event 100By Staff

May 2, 2015


It will be the weekend when the gardeners go nut2 – the 23rd and 24th of May. They will be flooding the gardening stores and working away in their gardens – and if there is a parent that is a gardener the kids are going to have to fend for themselves.

Public works equipment

The kids like getting up close to this kind of heavy equipment. It’s an inexpensive day out for a family.

How about getting out and Touching a-Truck? Each year the city holds a celebration for National Public Works Week – public works people are the men and women who fix the pot holes, shovel the snow and clean the catch basins – the unsung heroes who keep the wheels of the city going around.
