ELK GROVE, CA – It’s not every day that a child can say they have honked the horn of a bus or heard the wail of a fire engine from the front seat. However, they can do both at the City of Elk Grove’s first “Big Truck Day.”
The free event will be held on Wednesday, May 23 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the back parking lot of City Hall, located at 8401 Laguna Palms Way.
More than a dozen trucks, large vehicles, buses and construction equipment will be on site, with representatives stationed at each vehicle to educate visitors about the vehicle and the profession.
“Big Truck Day” will be held in celebration of National Public Works Week. The larger goal of the event is to help educate the public on the importance of the contribution of public works to their daily lives.
