The Children's Museum at Saratoga's Big Truck Day is always a highlight for the little kid set here in the Saratoga area, so Mini City is here with a special Mini Guide JUST for BTD! What is Big Truck Day? Well, it's exactly what it sounds like, trucks and vehicles from all over roll into the Maple Ave Middle School parking lot and the kids get to hop on board and explore (and yes, honk horns). Keep reading for all the info including some FAQ that will help you have a fantastic time.
1. Are kids 1 and under free? Yes
2. Is there a rain date scheduled or will there be a rain date, or is it rain or shine? The rain date is 8/12, and The Children's Museum at Saratoga will announce via social media feeds and their website by 8:30 on Saturday morning if it will be called off due to rain.
3. How much are tickets? Can I purchase tickets at the event? Tickets are $5 per child and $1 per adult and yes they can purchased day of at the event.
4. What food vendors/options are there? D’Andrea’s Pizza, Kona Ice and Mr. Ding a Ling Ice Cream.
Other important stuff to know? This event is totally stroller friendly, and the kids all get a chance to explore the trucks. Though it can be LOUD sometimes (we all know how much kiddos like to honk horns) they WILL have ear plugs to give out at the check in if you or your child need some. We have also seen kids come with headphones on already, which isn't a bad idea if your child is a little sound sensitive.
In addition to the trucks, they will also have an obstacle course with Go Kids, a bounce house, and lots of other hands-on activities!
Saturday at 9 AM - 1 PM at Maple Avenue Middle School, 515 Maple Ave, Saratoga Springs
