What is DOZER DAY?
Dozer Day is like going to a fair only our rides are real heavy construction equipment. Kids hop in the driver's seat and actually drive big yellow dozers, dump trucks and other heavy equipment with a professional operator at their side. Not only is it a dream come true for kids (and fun for the whole family), the event also benefits many local, children's charities.

New this year, save time and hassle by riding C-Tran from the 164th Park-and-Ride directly to the Dozer Day entrance. You'll need a C-Tran ticket if you are over 6; however we have a special souvenir for those who use C-Tran.C-Tran bus schedule.
