One of my favorite family events is happening this weekend, it’s the Children’s Museum at Saratoga’s Big Truck Day! This year, the Children’s Museum Big Truck Day will be held on Saturday, August 4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (rain date August 11). The Children’s Museum Big Truck Day promises to provide families a chance to enjoy an entirely different kind of horsepower. In its sixth year, the Big Truck Day continues to grow as one of the area’s premier family-friendly events for truck enthusiasts. Last year, more than 1,700 people attended the event.
Located in the parking lot of Maple Avenue School in Saratoga, this year’s Big Truck Day is sure to provide a broad assortment of vehicles as in previous years, including a hook and ladder fire truck; a CDTA hybrid bus; a yellow school bus; an 18-wheeler with a sleeper cab; a recycling truck; a heavy-duty wrecker; a crane with a 100-foot boom and much, much more. Last year, public safety and public works vehicles were also represented, including Saratoga Sheriff’s department officer and K-9 unit vehicles and a New York State Trooper rollover vehicle demonstration. Throughout the event, drivers will be available to answer questions about the vehicles.
As always, all proceeds from Big Truck Day will benefit the Children’s Museum at Saratoga. Admission is $5 per child, $1 per accompanying adult. Children under the age of one are free. Food and drinks will be available for purchase. Truck-themed activities for children include face painting, balloon animals and a bouncy-bounce.
