It’s an annual spring event designed for children and their families to get in and check out vehicles they may see in their neighborhoods and around town every day.

ECFE aims to host Vehicle Day each year the first Saturday in May.

Despite the drizzly, cold weather during this year’s event, there were plenty of smiles and wide eyes as children and their families got up close and personal with all kinds of vehicles from police cars and fire trucks to dump trucks and even a Coborn’s Delivers food delivery truck.
