On Saturday, Aug. 20, Edison’s Entertainment Complex in Edwardsville, Ill. will host a free event called “Kids, Cars And Trucks” from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The event is presented by Edison’s Lil’ Inventors Kids Club which is sponsored by the Bank of Edwardsville, and the highlight attraction will be interactive vehicles kids can sit in and use for photo ops.
“If other kids love cars as much as my son, we should have an awesome event,” said Tom Rezabeck, Edison’s Marketing Manager. “This free event is a great way for us to strengthen our relationships in the community and deliver another way to have fun at Edison’s!”
Some of the vehicles that will line Edison’s parking lot include The Edwardsville D.A.R.E. Camaro, an Edwardsville Fire truck, a Glen Carbon Police motorcycle, an EMS van, a Scott Air Force Base Humvee, a Republic Services recycling truck, a tractor and a tanker semi-truck from Schiber Truck Co.
Attendees can enter a free raffle for $50 toward bowling, laser tag, and arcade play at Edison’s and the first 50 kids ages 12 and under who purchase Edison’s $16 “entertainment doorbuster” will receive a free Edison’s backpack stuffed with school supplies. Free children’s books donated by local libraries will also be available for guests to take home.
“We will continue to extend sponsorship benefits to local business that want to donate school supplies and promote themselves to our guests,” added Rezabeck.
