Dozer Day is on the way!

Yup, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday (March 18-19) at State Fair Park, 1301 S. Fair Ave., kids' biggest dreams can come true: They'll have the chance to play in the dirt and operate heavy construction equipment!

It's almost like going to the fair -- except the rides are even better, since YOU get to drive!

Kids and adults alike will have a chance to drive the construction equipment -- including bulldozers and other vehicles. Other activities include a scavenger hunt and digging for hidden treasures!

The event is sponsored by the Central Washington Home Builders Association.

Purchase tickets early to save money and avoid ticket lines on the day of the event. You can purchase tickets securely online or at State Fair Park. Tickets are good for either day, but not both. You must purchase a separate ticket for each day.

Advance admission is $8 for ages 2-12 and 60 or older, $10 for adults and free for anyone under age 2. Tickets are $11 for kids, $13 for adults on the day of the event. Admission includes the cost of most activities inside the event, including equipment rides.
