Wonderful World of Wheels

Community vehicles like fire trucks, police cars and tractors rolled into the Whole Foods parking lot to give preschoolers a hands-on experience with vehicles they see every day.

“This event hits all five senses, especially for the three and five year olds to be able to go and sit in a vehicle. They can touch it; they can touch the steering wheel. We’ve heard the trolley bell going off left and right. So they can really explore the vehicle and there’s really nobody telling them no, touch and explore,” said Sara Cass, Program Manager with the Naperville Park District.

With over 700 visitors throughout the day, the exhibit was a great way for kids to take an imaginary test drive with vehicle drivers on hand to answer questions and demonstrate how these wheels work.

This was the 16th year the park district hosted the event, which was completely free to the public.
