This FREE event offered fun for the whole family - and was hosted by the City of Palm Coast Public Works Department, in celebration of National Public Works Week! The theme for National Public Works Week was #ReadyandResilient and by joining forces with all of the essential agencies doing work in Flagler County, it reinforced that spirit shown on event day!


"We had more than 75 vehicles displayed for our young kids and youth to come through and not only hop in but also touch the truck, pull the horn, and ask questions," said Public Works Workforce Data Analyst Benny Cope. “We are inspiring the minds of our youth to be our local workforce here in this great city that we live in!"
