When we were kids we were all fascinated by big trucks -- fire trucks, dump truck, backhoes, and the like.  In fact, most adults are still fascinated by heavy equipment.  DC's 15th annual "Touch a Truck" event is this Saturday from 8:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. in the parking lot of RFK Stadium.   There will be over 30 vehicles on site including street sweepers, snowplows, fire trucks, garbage trucks, ambulances and much more.  Kids will be able to climb around in the vehicles, and adults will get to test drive them!  The Department of Parks and Rec will also be there with games like tennis and basketball, as well as other fitness activities.   Free boxed lunches will be provided for kids up to age 18.  Find more details at this link.  It's a free event.
