Meet the Machines

2020’s event has been cancelled due to the extension of federal social distancing guidelines. See below for details from 2019.


Children of all ages will have the opportunity to touch, climb on and explore machines and unique vehicles. Examples of machines and vehicles included at the event are fire trucks, ambulances, cement truck, boats, tractors, a school bus, a book mobile, hot air balloon, military vehicles, and John Deere equipment.

This FREE event allows kids to learn about the vehicles they see on the road and television every day. Plus! Enjoy a live DJ, food vendors and a Kids Zone filled with 40ft inflatable obstacle course, inflatable slides, and games. The first hour and a half of the event is horn-free to accommodate children with special needs and sensitive ears.
