For kids, playing in the dirt is a part of life. Why do you think they smile all the time during the summer?

Dozer Day is kinda like going to a dirt fair, where the rides are real-life bulldozers.

What is better than dirt to a kid? Getting to drive! What's better than driving alone? Driving a DOZER! At this event, kids get to hop in the driver's seat and actually drive dozers, excavators and other heavy equipment with a professional operator at their side.

Dozer Days will be Saturday, March 28, and Sunday, March 29, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at State Fair Park. Purchase tickets early to save money and avoid ticket lines on the day of the event.

Admission is $9 for children (ages 2-12) and seniors (60-plus), $11 for adults and free for those under 2 years old. Get your tickets early, because the price goes up $3 at the gate. Once admission is paid, the cost of most activities inside the event are free, including equipment rides.

Go out and have some family fun and get dirty! For more details, check out Dozer Day Yakima!
