Trucks & Big Rigs for Kids

In keeping with recommendations to practice social distancing, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Trucks and Big Rigs for Kids event. Be sure to join us in 2021!


Next Event: April 2021

Event Details

Have you ever wondered what the inside of that big rig or tractor looks like? Do you have a child who LOVES trucks? Bring them out to the parking lot of The Theatre in the Park, located in beautiful Shawnee Mission Park, to explore trucks, tractors, construction, and city vehicles up close. 

Crawl, climb, and sit in the driver's seat and talk with the real life operators of these vehicles. Check out the featured character tow truck, as well as many other kids favorites.

Benefiting Special Olympics & Special Populations

Admission to this three-hour event is free, but a donation of $10 per vehicle is suggested at the gate. All proceeds will benefit the JCPRD Special Olympics and Special Populations Department.
