Mandan – The big trucks are coming
I can’t think of a better event for kids of all ages, heck ADULTS of all ages
I love Mandan, these wonderful people who live and work here. When you walk to the main center of Mandan, you feel so at home! A perfect event for the whole family is coming up, a chance for you to “rub and roll” and reach out and “hit a truck” – That’s when your young kids (AND adults) will have big smiles on their faces. faces and wide eyes because almost every type of truck imaginable will be there!
WHEN: Saturday, May 21
TIME: 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
WHERE: Main Street, Mandan
What it’s about: “Touch A Truck” gives kids a hands-on, up-close opportunity to explore heavy machinery, safety vehicles and other cool trucks, as well as ask questions of the people who use them machinery.
This is a FREE event – you can help stock the pantry for AID, Inc. by bringing a non-perishable food item to donate.
You can expect to find a maze of culverts/food trucks/vendors there.
Want a quick example of some of the trucks you might “hit”?
A ladder fire truck. Police SUV. Highway patrol truck. Garbage truck. Tow trucks. An ambulance. School bus. Mini excavators. A septic truck. Racing cars. A water truck. A milk truck. Ready-mixed concrete truck. A Skidsteer. A dump truck. A street sweeper. A bucket truck. A crane… AND much more.

LOOK: Here are the best lakeside towns to live in
Many of the towns included jump out at the casual observer as popular summer rental spots – Branson of the Ozarks, Missouri or Lake Havasu in Arizona – it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality of life offerings at beyond the beach and vacation homes. You’ll likely learn from a wide range of Americana: one of the last 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that began as a retirement area for Civil War veterans; an island teeming with some of the nation’s best public schools and revenue streams smack dab in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing more than the prison blues of Johnny Cash.
