Learn About Farming, Construction and Forestry at the John Deere Pavilion’s Learn & Play Day, Saturday, July 21
The John Deere Pavilion is proud to host its annual Learn & Play Day on Saturday, July 21 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This popular event welcomes kids of all ages to spend the day playing and learning about the work of John Deere customers. At this free event, children learn about life on a farm, see what it’s like to work on a construction site, explore the world of forestry and more.
For hands-on fun, kids can test their driving skills in a battery-powered Gator™ obstacle course or put their muscles to work in a pedal-powered tractor pull. Other special exhibits include a petting zoo, a construction zone to test toy equipment in sand and an innovation station where kids are inspired to build equipment and buildings out of Mega Blocks. Kids who complete all the “chores” in Little Johnny’s Farm, including milking a cow (not a real one), will receive a “Deere Dollar” they can cash in for a special treat. Blacksmith demonstrations will also be conducted on site throughout the day.
The John Deere Pavilion’s Learn & Play Day is open to the public and is free of charge. The John Deere Pavilion is located at 1400 River Drive in Moline. For more information, please call 309-765-1000 or visit us online at www.VisitJohnDeere.com.
