11th Annual Meet the Trucks Event Slated for Saturday, June 4

May 26, 2016

The Meet the Truck event at Lakewood Park continues to be something of a family tradition. Eleven years strong.

Lakewood’s got a big fleet of trucks, and on Saturday, June 4, they will all be on display at for the 11th-annual Meet the Trucks event at Lakewood Park. Think garbage trucks, fire trucks, SWAT vehicles. The event will also feature food trucks.

Sponsored by the city of Lakewood and the Lakewood Early Childhood PTA, the event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 4.

Residents are encouraged to see, touch and explore Lakewood’s fleet of trucks and vehicles.

Other vehicles on display will include an aerial truck, a dump truck, refuse truck, ambulance, police car, police motorcycle, and buses. The event — a success each year — is especially popular with children.

In addition to the trucks, the Lakewood Early Childhood PTA will offer crafts, a DJ, bounce houses, raffles, Jungle Bob and numerous exhibitions. Many community groups will also be in attendance offering children’s activities and sharing information about their organizations.

The 11th annual Meet the Trucks event once again promises to have something for everyone.

The best part? The event is free.

Those attending are encouraged to bring a nonperishable food donation to benefit the Lakewood Community Services Center.
