City sets Open House,Touch-A-Truck event


The City of Fredericksburg is hosting its first Open House and Touch-A-Truck event from 3-7 p.m. Thursday, March 8 at Marktplatz.

This event allows local families an opportunity to learn more about the city departments and get close to the garbage trucks, firetrucks, backhoes, bulldozers, loaders, police cars and more.

Food trucks will be on-site for visitors to grab dinner.

“This will provide the public, including local children, to see first-hand the many services provided by the city throughout the year,” City Manager Kent Myers said. “I know our city employees are excited about this opportunity. We want to particularly encourage children to attend this event to see some of the large equipment on display.”
