There are some BIG wheels out there. We’re not talking about the 16 inch tricycle many of us grew up with. We’re talking a CAT 730 that can haul 31 tons of stuff. The wheels alone are almost as tall as an adult. This is one of many BIG vehicles that will be on display in early September at Betty Virginia Park in Shreveport. You’re invited to the Annual Wheels in the Hills.
If it’s BIG, you’ll see it. Big rigs, fire trucks, busses, earth movers, tanks (yes, tanks), police and sheriff vehicles, and more will be on display. The kids will love getting to see these BIG vehicles up close (so will many parents and you).
Roll on in Friday night at 5:00pm. While you’re wandering in between the fire trucks and farm vehicles, make sure to try the first Anti-Bullying Wing Cook-Off. Reserving a ticket will get you 10 wings from area restaurants. Not only will you eat good wings but you’ll be helping the good people and programs at Pathways in Education to stop bullying. Music will be provided. All of these events are free except for the Anti-Bullying Wing Cook Off.
Saturday’s fun kicks off at 8:30am and ends at 11:00am with breakfast available for purchase. More fun activities are planned throughout Friday and Saturday. Find out more and follow along on their Facebook page. This is your chance to see some BIG wheels up close.
Along side the Wheels in the Hills will be the Walk-On’s Independence Bowl and Raising Cane’s Kid Combine. Children ages 5-13 can compete in the 40-yard dash, shuttle, agility ladder, tackling bags, throwing accuracy, and catching competitions. The winners will join others from a previous event in March on the field at Independence Stadium at the 2018 Walk-On’s Independence Bowl.
