This event has already passed.

Don't miss this once-a-year favorite from Purina Farms! Trucks & Tails is going virtual this year to give your kids a first-hand look inside some of their favorite trucks, let them "meet" a wide variety of dogs and learn how trucks and working dogs have long been perfect pairings to accomplish many important tasks. 

Purina Farms has partnered with local organizations for Trucks & Tails 2020. Your child will be in the driver's seat on this adventure and get to see how big trucks - including a fire truck, bulldozer, excavator and, of course, Bigfoot - operate. Kids will virtually explore 20 different vehicles and meet lots of dogs, like a miniature bull terrier, golden retriever, belgian tervuren, dachshunds and more! They'll learn about these amazing, hardworking dogs and how they work together with the vehicles to make perfect pairings.

Kids can also vote for their favorite pairing, sing along to catchy driving tunes and menorable dog songs, and more.

Take your viewing experience to the next level by purchasing a Trucks & Tails Activity Park for $15, perfect for the day and days to come! It includes activities, keepsakes, coloring pages, and more, and is designed especially for kids ages 8 and under. 

Trucks & Tails: A Virtual Experience is happening Saturday, October 3 from 10 to 11 a.m. Registration is required.
