Kids and adults alike learned the role the Public Works department plays in Waynesboro Saturday through the annual Public Works Day.
The event which was free to the public celebrated public works employees and their families.
Kids who came out took rides on a backhoe, learned how the sewer and water system works though models, and even learned about traffic lights.
The Director of Public Works, Brian McReynolds says it was also an opportunity for the public to come out and ask questions of the public works department.
"It's the opportunity for citizens who have questions about public works infrastructure to come out and ask questions-if you have a question about sewer, water, streets, cemetery, then this is your opportunity to come out and talk to the people who actually do the work in the field."
McReynolds says between a thousand and 15 hundred people usually show up to the event at the Public Works Department each year.
