May 10, 2012|By Mary Gail Hare, The Baltimore Sun

Baltimore will show off its biggest trucks Saturday and allow young residents to meet police officers, firefighters and others who drive the big rigs through city streets.

The Biggest Big Truck Show brings about 20 vehicles to the Baltimore Museum of Industry. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 1415 Key Highway.

Visitors can see, touch, even take a seat in many among the fleet of vehicles, including Big Bertha, Baltimore's largest tow truck, fire engine, motorcycles and a fireboat that will shoot up massive plumes of water. Police officers, firefighters, sanitation workers and truck drivers will demonstrate the latest technology, talk about their jobs and demonstrate how to repair roads, put out fires and collect recyclables.

Child-sized construction hats and vests will be available as long as supplies last. A magic company will do balloon art and other children's activities will take place throughout the day. For those who want to extend the visit, the museum is offering $2 admission for adults and children 12 and under can enter for free.

Information: 410-545-6541.
