PHOTOS: Honkin' Haulin' Hands-On Trucks

On the first Sunday of autumn, the kids were in the drivers' seats

In Ohio, the legal age for a full driver's license is 18. On Sunday, Sept. 25, though, dozens of kids got the keys to the city's service vehicles during the 5th annual "Honkin' Haulin' Hands-On Trucks" in the parking lot of the Family Aquatic Center.

Twenty-four vehicles, with an estimated worth of $3 million, were open to exploration and imagination. Youngsters got to sit in the cab of a fire engine and climb into the bay of an ambulance. The children also received a driver's license and a key. Luckily, they didn't have to pass a driver's test.

Nearby, the Beachwood Historical Society held its Chalk Drawing Festival. Both events were originally scheduled for Sept. 11., but were postponed because of bad weather.
