|Trucks and Big Rigs for Kids event returns to The Theatre in the Park on April 13|
A popular special event which lets kids get an up-close look at big rigs, tractors, and all types of equipment will be returning to the Theatre in the Park in Shawnee Mission Park on April 13.
The event is called Trucks and Big Rigs for Kids and will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, in the parking lot at The Theatre in the Park, 7710 Renner Road, Shawnee. Participants can see what the insides of these vehicles look like. This event is for all ages, but parents are encouraged to bring their little ones out to meet and greet trucks, tractors, construction, and city vehicles up close. They’ll have the opportunity to crawl, climb, and sit in the driver’s seat while visiting with the real-life operators of these vehicles. This year's event will also feature the tow truck character from the movie Cars, and participants will be able to purchase lunch from the Crave Food Truck.
Admission to this four-hour event is free, but a donation of $10 per participant vehicle is suggested. Proceeds benefit the district's Special Olympics and Special Populations programs.
