Big Truck Day

Bring your child, of any age, by the new Town Corporation Yard (beside the new Forest Service building on Stockrest Springs Rd.) for a hands-on, up close day with heavy equipment! 

Truckee-Donner Recreation & Park District presents the 8th annual Big Truck Day at the Town Corp Yard on October 21, 2017 from 11 am – 2 pm.

Town Corp Yard address: 10969 Stockrest Springs Rd.

Have you ever seen wide-eyed kids when a fire engine rolls by them with the lights flashing and the siren on? Or, as they stare in wonder when a helicopter hovers over them in the sky? As a young child learning about the world, there is a certain fascination about machines, that to them, seems larger than life. The noises, unique shapes, and movements they make run wild in a child’s imagination. Big Truck Day is an event that fuels that imagination, and allows the kids to step inside their favorite machinery to bring to life the Tonka toys they play with at home. With events like Big Truck Day, a child may decide their dream is to become a firefighter, construction worker, or pilot. They may even get the chance to feel what it is like to fly when they step inside the Truckee Airport’s Flight Simulator.

Other activities include hanging out with “Smokey” Bear, a BBQ provided by Truckee Lions Club, and a bake sale benefiting the TDRPD Butterfly Preschool. So bring your children out to the Truckee-Donner Recreation and Park District’s Big Truck Day for a fun community event with the kids. Maybe it will bring out the big kid in you?
