Save the date for the fifth-annual Day of the Dozers on September 30th, 2017! This unique family-friendly event was created to raise money for the Children’s Hospital and Clinics of Minnesota. As the main attraction, children get to sit in the cabs of giant bulldozers, excavators, dump trucks, and skid steers and run the equipment with a licensed operator. A large culvert maze, variety of games, safety demos, prize giveaways, equipment simulators, and food round out the event. This year will include more equipment, gate entries, vendors, and activities than ever before! Attendees can also purchase a $1 raffle ticket for a chance to win construction toys. Gopher State One Call (GSOC), a Minnesota Common Ground Alliance (MNCGA) participant, is proud to be a key sponsor of this year’s event.
