Folsom’s annual Public Works/Public Participation Day offers an array of activities and useful information for children and adults.
The free event runs from 9:30 a.m.-noon, Wednesday, May 22, in City Lions Park near the Folsom Public Library.
Those who attend may meet the Police Department’s mounted and K-9 officers and animals, hop on board a garbage or fire truck, visit a few adoptable pets and watch Curby the robot teach children about recycling.
Library staff will also share information about summer reading programs and other City staff will respond to questions about services. There will be free popcorn and small give-away items for attendees.
The local celebration is scheduled in conjunction with the American Public Works Association’s Annual National Public Works Week.
