Make plans to bring your family and friends to enjoy Truck-a-Palooza 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 8. The event will be held at Town Center Mall, in the lower parking lot by Sears. This fun and educational event will give children of all ages the opportunity to explore police cars, SWAT trucks, fire rescue trucks, fire engines, heavy construction vehicles, dump trucks, front end loaders, military vehicles, a police helicopter and a mobile art truck. Parents are encouraged to bring their cameras for a lot of great photo opportunities. The cost is $5 per person, with a $20 maximum per family. All proceeds benefit the Cobb County Safety Village, where children learn important safety techniques and crime prevention information through hands-on experiences.
