Celebrate Welcoming Week in Willmar with friends and neighbors!

Join us for a family friendly event downtown! πŸŽ‰
We’re blocking off part of downtown for the 3rd Annual 🚚 Touch-a-Truck event πŸš’ AND the last πŸƒ Miles4Mentors race πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ of the season!
Touch-a-Truck is a free, family-friendly event that gives kids of ALL ages the opportunity to explore big vehicles they see every day, giving them a hands-on experience to better understand how and why they work. Your kiddos will be able to check out construction πŸ‘·β€β™€οΈ, emergency πŸš‘, farm equipment 🚜, transportation 🚌, military πŸš›, delivery πŸš‚, and any other type of similar equipment you might find around the city!

Check in for the Miles 4 Mentors Run will begin at 9AM, with the run starting at 10AM πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ This is a short, kid-friendly fun run. More info at: www.miles4mentors.com

Both of these events will be held in conjunction with Welcoming Week in Willmar!

This event is part of Welcoming Week celebrations across the country, with southwest Minnesota events led by local communities and supported by Southwest Initiative Foundation in partnership with Pioneer PBS and Southwest Minnesota Arts Council.
