They’ll be doing everything from building roads to digging to yarding and loading trucks so come on by and learn how it all works.

For the budding truck enthusiast there’ll be a sandbox with toy trucks and equipment as well as an activity table inside the Industrial Heritage Centre.

This year’s event will be held at the Industrial Heritage Centre located at 3250 9th Ave., right beside the Port Alberni Curling Club. Admission is free and the event runs from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on both days.
