Big Truck Day Ahead

One of the most popular events of the year at the Children’s Museum of the East End, Big Truck Day, is planned for Saturday, Sept. 30. Space is limited and early registration is encouraged online at

From emergency vehicles to farm and construction trucks, kids can “explore and interact with some of the massive machines that share our roads and keep the East End moving.” They’ll even meet some of the people who drive them.

The event starts at 10 a.m. It is free for museum members, and costs $19 per person for adults and all children over 12 months old.
