The Town of Strathmore is celebrating Public Works Week.

The initiative is meant to honour those who keep infrastructure in the town running smoothly.

On Saturday, the town will be hosting the Big Truck Petting Zoo event at Kinsmen Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The family-friendly event is a chance to check out heavy equipment and trucks from the town's fleet, while getting a chance to interact with staff and operators.

There will also be a number of activities including photos and tours, a colouring contest and a name the plows contest.
