Visit with the men and women who help keep your city a great place to live, work, and play. Bring the entire family and enjoy free demos and fun activities. Get a close look and climb into the driver’s seat of multiple trucks. Enjoy a hay ride around the large Public Works grounds. Climb into the bucket of an aerial truck for a ride into the sky. Facebook painting, balloon animals, and an inflatable bouncer will be sure to add to kid's fun. New this year you can climb inside the 49ers’ simulator trailer and try your hand at virtually operating some equipment!
