Kennewick Kids Dig Some Rigs

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- Down at Columbia park Saturday, you couldn't miss the giant machines along the river. Kids got to climb all over the rigs; they even got to ride in a giant monster truck.

The truck wheeled its way around the park and showed off it's best moves. There was a car crushing presentation as well where kids learned how cars are compacted and disposed of.

"Kids get to climb aboard, experience their favorite toys in real life and just have so much fun, beeping the horns, getting to get on top of those rigs and just love playing with their favorite toys," said Lori Lott, one of the event coordinators.

The admission fees collected at the event will help pediatric patients at the Kadlec Regional Medical Center.
