Drive-Thru Event Details
CWHBA is excited to present one of its signature events, reimagined as a drive-thru experience for the entire family!
With over a mile of exciting and lively displays, 2021 Dozer Day®: Drive-Thru will feature heavy construction, industrial equipment, and machinery, first responder vehicles, and other implements from members and industry partners. Event attendees can remain safely within their vehicles as they wind through enriching displays of both static and “in-action” machines replicating the look and feel of a real construction zone and job site. As they drive through zoned roadways like “Excavator Expressway” and “Responder Road”, and “Trucking Turnpike,” easy-to-scan QR codes throughout the event program will connect participants directly to pre-recorded messages and videos about the equipment on display and construction industry, operations, careers, and implements.
Each vehicle registration will receive one complimentary Construction “Crew Bag” full of branded merchandise, local deals, and offerings, activities, plus a child-sized hard hat and safety vest from the event sponsors. Pre-purchased, electronic tickets are required for this event.
Only one vehicle per ticket registration will be admitted to the Dozer Day® Drive-Thru feature. To help mitigate any long waits or traffic backups, tickets are being sold in designated time slots. Attendees are encouraged to arrive at the timeslot purchased and enter from the northside, via Washington Avenue and 48th Avenue entryway, following Spring Creek Rd.
COVID SAFETY PLANS: this event will be following the guidelines (as applicable) under Phase 1 Curbside Retail Covid-19 Requirements, as outlined in the Governors “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” Proclamation 20-25.
