Sensory Hour: 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., for those preferring a quieter environment. During this hour, vehicles will not allow horns and sirens to be utilized.  

During this event, children and their families can climb behind the wheel of some of the city’s big trucks from the Police, Fire, Public Works, Parks, and Water departments, as well as other rigs from local companies and organizations to learn and explore. The Mobile Recreation team will also be onsite with exciting games and activities. Additional entertainment will be happening throughout the event. Food will be available for purchase.
