Wheels in the Hills: kids grok heavy equipment in Betty Virginia Park on Sat, Aug 1, 10 am to 2 pm


Wheels in the Hills by Foster Orthodontics is a free, kid-friendly event during which children will be able to explore more than 30 large vehicles including fire trucks, bulldozers, helicopters, cranes and more, says Matt Snyder. It will take place Sat, Aug 1, 10 am to 2 pm, at Betty Virginia Park. Air conditioned tents will cool participants between explorations.

“We can't wait to see the look on children’s faces as they get to sit in the cab of a crane or look up at the blades of a helicopter,” said Snyder. “To me, that’s what being a kid is all about.”

Money raised through the sale of event sponsorships will be used to purchase school supplies for underprivileged children in Shreveport-Bossier. Donations of new, unused school supplies such as backpacks, notebooks and writing utensils will also be collected at the event. For sponsorship information, contact Matt Snyder at (318) 272-3139 or

Wheels in the Hills is being produced by the business owners who planned Shreveport Derby Day: Matt Snyder of PinPoint Local Marketing, Grant Nuckolls of Twisted Root Burger Co., Nick and Elizabeth McElhatten of King Hardware and Andrew Crawford of Rhino Coffee.
