On October 11, The Maryland Zoo will once again play host to a variety of “beasts of burden” better known as big trucks! Always a favorite family event, these “Trucks for Tots” will be “on exhibit” from the top of Buffalo Yard Road winding their way down towards Creature Encounters, from 10:00AM – 1:00PM. Kids of all ages are welcome to visit the trucks, including a concrete mixer, roll-off truck, crane, and hopefully a fire engine!

“The Maryland Zoo is a staple for so many families and Chase is proud to be able to bring Trucks for Tots to the community in a safe, family friendly environment,” said Elana Thornton, a member of the Maryland Zoological Society Board of Trustees and Chase Maryland Market Director.

This year, Trucks for Tots will look a bit different as the Zoo makes COVID-based adjustments to the event for guests’ comfort:

  • Families can take pictures with the trucks, but due to COVID restrictions, no one will be able to touch or sit in the trucks this year.
  • Timed ticketing reservations are required to enter the Zoo. Trucks for Tots is a free event and does not require a separate ticket.
  • Face masks must be worn in the event area for children and adults ages 2 & up.
  • General admission tickets for October 11th are on sale now.
