Children and families can explore Baltimore's fleet of fire trucks, police cruisers and bucket trucks Saturday at the city's "Big Truck Day."
The free event runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the Baltimore Museum of Industry at 1415 Key Highway. It also features face painting, coloring and balloon twisting.
Recycling bins will be on sale and city Department of Public Works officials will be available to provide information.
Children will be able to climb aboard some of the vehicles and receive a construction hat or vest to wear when inspecting the fleet.
They also cast a vote to name a new trash truck from a list of contenders — Mean Green, Gorilla Joe, The Crusher, Dumpsy, Trashasaurus, and Hulkinator — submitted by the students at Robert W. Coleman Elementary School.
