If you’re a young kid in Barrington, this may just be one of the hottest events of the year, especially if your wee one is into things that make you go “VROOM!” It’s Barrington’s 12th annual “Big Trucks” show and it’s happening tomorrow. Prepare your tots to climb on board the biggest trucks in Barrington and you’re sure to get some little motors running.
Barrington’s 12th annual “Big Trucks” show runs tomorrow from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. and I’ve heard local moms with young kids talking about this event for weeks…
So here’s the scoop… The trucks will be set up for your kids to climb behind the wheels and honk some major horns at Ron Beese Park in Barrington tomorrow. You’ll find firetrucks, garbage trucks, pickup trucks, dump trucks, a school bus, wheelchair van, semi truck, snowplow truck, sweet sweeper, ATV with plow, mini loader truck and even an aerial bucket truck. Now if that doesn’t start your engine, then I’m out of gas!
There will be firemen and other big truck operators on hand offering demonstrations and making themselves available for photo opportunities. Your kids will be able to climb inside the trucks and even take a seat behind the wheels It’s a fun day out that’s very close to home and will definitely be a day to remember. The cost is $2 per person. There will be big wheel races from 10:30 to 12:30 along with and a live performance by the Juke Box Band, known for their signature classic rock, country and blues riffs from the 50’s and 60’s. There will also be an inflatable slide on hand for the kids to burn some serious fuel. And don’t worry about packing lunch. Food will be available from local vendors to keep those little tanks full throughout the event.
So don’t miss Barrington’s Big Trucks show from 10 – 2 tomorrow, July 30, at Ron Beese Park, 50 Rotary Drive in Barrington, Illinois. It only happens once a year, but it’ll keep your kids talking for months. The Barrington Park District is organizing the event.
