The Biggest Big Truck Show In Town Big Truck Day In Baltimore Is Saturday, May 12, 2012 At The Baltimore Museum Of Industry
Big Fire Engines, Big Police Cars, Big Dump Trucks and a really BIG Fire Boat
Public Works Director, Alfred H. Foxx, today announced that Big Truck Day is back! This FREE event will be held Saturday, May 12, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on the parking lot of the Baltimore Museum of Industry, 1415 Key Highway.
Kids and adults of all ages will enjoy this opportunity to see, touch and sit in some of the biggest vehicles in the City’s fleet. Those on display will include “Big Bertha” the City’s largest Tow Truck along with Fire Engines and Trucks, Police Cars and Motorcycles, Rescue Vehicles and a REALLY, REALLY BIG Fireboat – shooting up massive plumes of water. Nearly 20 vehicles and equipment will be on-show for our citizens that day.
Not only that, kids will get to interact with real Police Officers, Firefighters, Sanitation Workers and Big Truck Drivers. They will learn about the latest technology and hear all about what our dedicated public servants do day to day and also those special tasks where lives are saved, how roads are fixed, how recycling is collected and how one day they too can join the ranks of these talented men and women.
In addition, this year there will be not one, but two balloon twisters from the One-Step Magic Company. Things to do in the Big Truck Day Activity Pavilion, include coloring big trucks and making them with Lego’s, getting a fun Big Truck Day tattoo, or testing your running speed on the Speed Sentry radar unit. Youngsters will also receive a construction hat or a safety vest, while supplies last. Food will available for purchase from the Baltimore Police Explorers and food truck vendors from the Maryland Mobile Vendors Association that will include Cupcake Runners, Kooper’s Chow Hound, and Miss Twist ice cream.
