It's Monster Machines Day at Des Peres Park! See a police car, bulldozer, fire truck and much more up close during this hands-on, free event. Kids can climb in and look around and let their imaginations take them on a ride.
Kids can also visit the bicycle obstacle course and go for a real ride to test their skills. Kids are encouraged to bring their own bike. Certified cycling instructors will be available to assist with the course and bike fittings. The Bike Center will be on site to conduct helmet fittings. Helmets will be available for purchase for $15 while supplies last.
The event is free and no registration is required.
Saturday, May 4, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Des Peres Park parking lot.
