Two big events in Tukwila Saturday will offer kids of all ages a chance to check out big rigs and then cool off in the Tukwila Pool.
The annual Touch-A-Truck is 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Foster High School parking lot, 4242 S. 144th St., Tukwila.
And right next door at the Tukwila Pool, the Tukwila Metropolitan Park District is sponsoring a community picnic so residents can experience their pool and gather together – and get something to eat.
The picnic at the pool is 10 a.m.-5 p.m. There are free games, a hamburger/hot dog meal for $4 and a $1 swim 3 p.m.-5 p.m.
At the Touch-a-Truck Safety and Emergency Preparedness Fair, the City of Tukwila police and fire departments and others will offer tips for preparing for and surviving after an emergency. Always favorites, there will be fire trucks and police vehicles to check out.
The picnic at the pool is the only chance to get food from a vendor at the two events.
Any proceeds from the picnic will go to a pool scholarship fund to pay for swim lessons. Volunteers will staff the picnic.
