2023 Vehicle Day is a sweeping success

street sweeper(6/5/23) The Anoka-Hennepin Schools Preschool and Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) Parent Advisory Council hosted a Vehicle Day on Saturday, June 3, at Champlin Park High School. An estimated 1,000 people attended the popular event which allowed young children from across the school district to explore a variety of different vehicles and meet the people who drive them.

More than 25 local businesses, organizations, and public service vehicles were onsite, including fire trucks, police cars, snowplows, street sweepers, tow trucks, buses, dump trucks, semi-truck trailers, and an ice cream truck. Children were able to climb into the driver's seat and learn about each of the vehicles.
