Madison Parks is pleased to present Trucks and Treasures, featuring the Kids to Kids Garage Sale and the Big Rig Gig! This is a fun event that brings two popular summer programs together for an exciting morning out with the entire family. Trucks and Treasures is hosted twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. Both events will take place from 9:00am – Noon.
Kids to Kids Garage Sale
The Kids to Kids Garage is a unique opportunity for youth to reserve a space to sell their own items to other kids. Kids and families may sell items such as toys, games, dress-up attire, books, bikes, DVDs, and other similar items. The selling of food or baked goods is not permitted.
For more information about this program, or to register to have your own booth to sell items, visit the Kids to Kids Garage Sale webpage.
Big Rig Gig
The Big Rig Gig is a showcase of Madison’s premier public service machinery, equipment and employees. Kids of all ages (adults too!) are welcomed to climb on, explore and get up close and personal with the big rigs and meet the employees who operate them. Vehicles participating include those from Madison Police Department, Madison Fire Department, Madison Metro, Madison Water Utility, Madison Streets Division and the Madison Parks Division including a fire engine, police car, construction equipment, dump trucks and more! Don’t forget to bring the camera, there will be plenty of photo opportunities you won’t want to miss!
