Annual Truck Day a Blast at Scarsdale Library

The Scarsdale Highway Department gave kids a firsthand experience of the maintenance trucks they see around town.

These children may not have their licenses yet, but that didn't stop them from getting in front of the wheel of their favorite trucks.

The Scarsdale Highway Department held their annual Big Truck Day yesterday afternoon in the parking lot of the Scarsdale Public Library.

The event had a great turn-out filled with eager kids as the highway department vehicles drove into the parking lot including a back hoe, dump truck, and a street sweeper.

Construction hats were given out to all those in attendance and ice cream was distributed courtesy of Friends of the Scarsdale Library.

The main attraction of the day was the front-end loader, which featured a claw attachment that the children were allowed to climb into and then be elevated into the air.

The kids were invited to climb into the trucks and get a perspective of what it's like to be in control of such important machinery.

Karen Zielinski, Head of Children's Services at the Scarsdale Public Library, pointed out that the event "gives a better idea of how important the Highway Department is to the Village, especially we saw with the recent storm, these guys were working 24 hours a day doing a really great job."
