There’s a construction equipment playground just 40 minutes from Columbus

“Touch-a-truck” events are always a hit with the kids. The way these things usually work is your little one can get up close and personal with a fire engine, maybe even donning a helmet and sitting for a photo opportunity in a parked vehicle.

Been there done that? Have we got the thing for you.

On Saturday, July 20, Lancaster’s Festival Fair Day wants to give kids (and kids at heart) the chance to operate heavy construction equipment—we’re talking earth-movers—and even push some dirt around, move scrap metal with a magnet, or excavate/drive around in one of the machines.

The “Operator for a Day” event will run from 10am-5pm at the Lancaster County Fairgrounds, according to information on the event’s Facebook page. While the event is free and open to all ages, there is one stipulation – no sandals or open-toe shoes allowed!
