WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- It's one of the little one's favorite days of the year -- Big Truck Day -- and it's coming back to White Plains for all to enjoy on Saturday, May 13.
Held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Gedney Recycling Yard, 85 Gedney Way, the interactive day of fun offers children (and big children) a chance to learn about, see, touch, sit in, sound the sirens, honk the horns and even operate some of the biggest vehicles in the city’s fleet.
Vehicles on display and providing demonstrations are from the city’s Department of Public Works, Police and Fire departments and Trans Care Ambulance.
The display will include antique vehicles, brush chippers, stump grinders, backhoes, aerial bucket trucks, rollers and pavers, street sweepers, automated side loaders and many more Tonka Trucks that keep White Plains rolling each day. There will also be demonstrations from the city's Engineering and Survey departments.
Admission is free and the event is held rain or shine.
