Companies dig deep to help Dirty Digger for a Day at the fall fair
Gone but not forgotten, the City of Castlegar Dig Dirt Days were very popular as kids got to ride around and try out various equipment at the city works yard.
Dirty Diggers Excavating company is bringing the idea back with Dirty Digger for a Day event, which will take place at the Pass Creek Fall Fair on Sept. 22 and 23.
"It's going to be for the kids to come and play on the equipment and operate it with an operator inside, of course, and dig up some dirt and see how the machines work," said Chris Popoff of Dirty Diggers. "
The event will take place from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., but Popoff says they won't leave if there are kids waiting at 3.
"If we have a big line-up at 3, we'll stay there until every kid has had a chance," he said.
Dirty Digger for a Day will also feature prizes and temporary tattoos for the kid.
"We've got lots of prizes that we've donated as well as Interfor, which donated money, and BC Hydro, which donated material," said Popoff. "Everybody's got together to donate to help this event be a success. West K Concrete is donating the sand and gravel. Brandt Tractor is donating any equipment we may need for the weekend. It should be a good time."
