Vroom, vroom! Beep, Beep! It's that time of year again! On Saturday, May 16 big trucks galore rolling into Hinesburg for Big Truck Day  and Children's Festival 2015. The event is held from 9:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Hinesburg Nursery School hosts this annual event, now in its 17th year, which lets youngsters and their families get up close to (and even climb inside!) their favorite big trucks and vehicles.

The action all takes place behind Hinesburg Nursery School (HNS) / Hinesburg Community School. This year the lot will be packed with construction vehicles, a school bus, firetrucks and other rescue vehicles, tractors and utility  vehicles for  children of all ages to see, touch and explore.

After the kids are done investigating the big trucks, they can enjoy games and crafts, face painting by Snow Queen, story time for little ones and more.  Adults and children alike can fill up on tasty BBQ and goodies from the bake sale. Plus there will bed live musical entertainment by  the John Daly Trio (11 a.m. - 1 p.m.).

Admission is just $5 per child. Adult admission is FREE! So bring your camera, your appetite and your friends for a day full of fun! Have sensitive ears?  Don't worry--the event will be horn-free from 9:45 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Hinesburg Nursery School, a nonprofit, STARS certified, state licensed parent-cooperative preschool for children ages 3 through 5. For more information visit hinesburgnurseryschool.org.
