The sixth annual Meet A Machine event rolls into the WFCU Centre parking lot this Saturday.

This free family event gives children a chance to touch and climb on those mighty machines they would usually only see from a distance.

Close to 50 vehicles will be on hand including a front-end loader, excavator, backhoe, and heavy duty wreckers, salt truck, street sweeper, garbage truck and aerial truck, race cars, school buses and transit buses, and police cruisers and ATVs, ambulance, fire trucks and fire engines.

This event is a literacy based experience that provides children with an opportunity to learn about the machines by climbing into and exploring them. The drivers who operate the vehicles will be on hand to talk to the children about the machines and answer any questions that they have.

It runs from 10am to 2pm.
