If you're looking for something fun for the whole family this weekend, the Town of Strathmore is gearing up to host its Big Truck Petting Zoo event on Saturday.

The program will run at Kinsmen Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will feature an interactive open house where kids can learn about the initiative, equipment and people who work behind the scenes in Strathmore to keep the town running smoothly.

According to the town, there will also be photos and tours, a colouring contest and a name the plows initiative.

Members of Town Council recently declared May 19-25 as National Public Works Week to honour employees who help contribute to health, safety and quality of life in Strathmore.
