Trucks and Big Rigs set April 1

Trucks and Big Rigs for Kids will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 1 at the Theatre in the Park parking low, 7710 Renner Road, in Shawnee Mission Park.

Have your grandchildren ever wondered what the inside of big rig or tractor looks like? Do they love trucks? If so, bring them out to the park to explore trucks, tractors, construction and city vehicles up close. Participants can crawl, climb and sit in the driver ’s seat and talk with the real-life operators of these vehicles.

Suggested donations of $10 per vehicle will be accepted. Proceeds from the event benefit Johnson County Park and Recreation District's Special Populations/Special Olympics.
