The City of High Point Public Services Department will celebrate National Public Works Week with its annual Public Works Day, an interactive and educational event, on Wednesday, May 24, from 9 a.m. – noon at the High Point Public Library. This family-friendly event will include educational booths, equipment from many of the City's Public Services Divisions, giveaways and demonstrations. As a new feature this year, the event will have a mini excavator rodeo competition. During the rodeo, public services employees will compete by performing two different tasks with the mini excavators to show off their skills with the equipment. Participants will be scored based on the total time it takes them to complete the tasks. The competition's overall winner will be sent to the American Public Works Association equipment show and backhoe rodeo competition next spring. Public Works Day is free and open to the public. In the event of bad weather, a rain date has been scheduled for Thursday, May 25.
