Learn about vital City services and meet the staff responsible for keeping Alexandria mobile, clean, safe and eco-friendly.

    Touch-A-Truck
    Climb inside city trucks and learn what it’s like to drive them safely around Alexandria from the people who operate them on a daily basis

    Composting Station
    Learn more about the city’s composting efforts and drop off your weekly compost donation

    Mock Traffic Corner
    A replica of a street corner—complete with a miniature working stoplight—will be used to highlight the importance of pedestrian safety and help teach children to be aware, alert, and attentive when crossing the street

    Information Tables
