The “Things That GO Show” Will Roll into The Town Center at Levis Commons This Fall
Explore things that go of all shapes and sizes on Saturday, October 10th from Noon until 4:00 p.m.

PERRYSBURG, Ohio (September 9, 2015) ¬– The Town Center at Levis Commons is pleased to announce the “Things That GO Show”, a free outdoor community event to take place on Saturday, October 10th from Noon until 4:00 p.m. This hands-on experience is presented by ProMedica and offers attendees the chance to explore farm machinery, emergency vehicles, commercial equipment and more.  A sensory-friendly quiet hour will take place from 11:00 a.m. until Noon.

From a fire truck to school bus and tractor to tow truck, children will be able to get up-close and personal with an assortment of things that go. In addition to the static vehicle displays, there will be a variety of family-friendly activities to entertain the crowds. Attendees will be able to relax on a horse-drawn hayride through Levis Commons, test their skills on an inflatable obstacle course, take a spin on a mini-gator track and more!

Throughout the event, children will be able to climb in and see the view from the driver’s seat of select vehicles while others will be on display with sights and sounds engaged. To accommodate those who may prefer a more sensory-friendly experience, Levis Commons has partnered with the Autism Society of Northwest Ohio to offer a “quiet hour” from 11:00 a.m. until Noon. During this time, horns and motors will be off and vehicles will remain still.
