Truck-a-Palooza is going virtual this fall! From October 19 through November 20, we will be helping you learn about city trucks that serve Lexington and the people behind the wheel.

This year’s Truck-a-Palooza will consist of five weeks of virtual truck-filled fun, with arts and crafts, a costume contest, and live interviews with city truck drivers and trucks in action.
