More than two dozen vehicles were on hand for children and adults alike to check out in an “up close and personal” way.

The vehicles included a fire engine, ambulance, construction equipment, bucket truck, garbage truck, dump truck,  antique farm tractors, tractor trailer (18 wheeler), pet spa van, propane truck, and school bus.

Other attractions will include “The Fun Bus,” The Roaming Railroad (train rides for kids), a bounce house, face painting and tattoos. There also was a bake sale as well as food and beverages from Court House Dogs and Team Ice Cream Co.

Admission was $10 per family, with all proceeds going toward the Booth Hill School PTO Fund that promotes educational programs for the school.
