Put yourself in the seat of a backhoe or a 100-foot ladder fire truck, or get an up-close look at bulldozers, dump trucks, and other cool equipment at the City's 5th annual "Public Works Day," Saturday, May 12.
Presented by the City's Public Works staff, in conjunction with "National Public Works Week," the event offers all ages the opportunity to learn about the equipment used for public improvement projects from the professionals who actually operate the equipment and plan the projects.
The theme of this year's event is "Creating a Lasting Impression," and staff will be on hand to answer questions and demonstrate the many services provided by Public Works and the Johns Creek Fire Department. The event also features games and prizes. Free food is available while supplies last.
Local Cubs and Boy Scouts can work toward merit badges and academic pins at "Public Works Day." Badge opportunities include: Citizenship in the Community, Soil and Water Conservation, Engineering and Traffic Safety; academic pins include Citizenship, Map and Compass and Mathematics. All the requirements of each merit badge may not be fulfilled at the event – specific aspects of each badge will be offered.
The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Johns Creek High School, 5575 State Bridge Road. Admission and parking are free.
