Dozer Days: Kids' dream comes true
Children of all ages can try their hand in operating loaders, bulldozers, excavators, and a crane under close supervision of equipment operators employed by local contractors! The 8th Annual Dozer Day family event is scheduled for Saturday June 7th, 9 am to 4 pm at Airborne Speedway in South Plattsburgh, NY. The event will take place no matter the weather, so come out and join the fun!
Not only will children have a chance to try and touch various heavy equipment, they will also be able to enjoy many other fun activities, such as, a wagon ride, jump house, music, face painting, miniature golf, arcade style games, fire education, arts and crafts, and much more! There won't be a dull moment!
To add more excitement to this event, there will be a Pro's vs Joe's competition featuring local sheriffs and town supervisors. Don't worry if you work up an appetite, there will be a food vendor so families can make a day out of it!
