If you are looking for something fun and entertaining for the kids and yourself this weekend, Great Barrington Rotary's Truck Day/Pumpkin Fest event is a fine option. In the past, Truck Day has been held during the month of May, but this year you'll be getting the fall version which is a big win. Why you ask? Because this year, you're getting a bonus as Pumpkin Fest will be combined with Truck Day. That's right, you're basically getting two events for the price of one.

Kids love Great Barrington Rotary's Truck Day Event

I've been to a number of Truck Day events in the past and let me tell you the kids absolutely love it. Truck Day was designed for kids as they can climb on all sorts of trucks, sit inside and honk the horns. Plus, an old beat-up vehicle is usually on-premises for youngsters to paint up and make a mess of...a child's dream. Heck, even adults can get into that fun without hesitation.

What activities will be offered at this year's Great Barrington Rotary Truck Day/Pumpkin Fest event? 

This year Great Barrington Rotary's Truck Day/Pumpkinfest event will be held this Sunday, Oct. 17 at Ski Butternut on 380 State Road in Great Barrington from 10 am - 3 pm. Nobody will complain about being bored as there will once again be vehicles for families to explore including race cars. There will be games, a silent auction & raffles, a giant pumpkin drop (which is at 2 pm), pumpkin painting, even a duck race. Not to mention there will be food & drinks galore along with face painting opportunities for the kids.

Check out the photos below from past Truck Day events to get an idea of the fun that is in store for you this Sunday. Don't forget, this year's event will be even more fun as Pumpkin Fest will be a part of the festivities. Admission fee and additional details follow the photo gallery.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
