“Big Rigs” Mean Big Day At Cullman Center in Sidney
The Cullman Child Development Center in Sidney had a Big Rig Day for the public on Saturday. The center's parking lot was filled with all kinds of "working vehicles" which the children from the area were invited to crawl all over and explore. Payne's Cranes towered over the landscape and other vehicles were scattered all over the grounds: police cars, cement trucks, ambulances, old cars and pick up trucks, fire trucks, heavy duty dump trucks, school buses and more.
"The kids are having a ball today," Amy Williams told CNY News. "They are climbing all over each of these vehicles and really getting into it. Despite the heat the turnout has been great. We really thank all the vehicle owners and companies who supported us in this big fun and family-friendly community event." Food was served and raffles were available.
