On Saturday, Aug. 24, the Douglas County Car Care program is holding a Tow Truck Pull, where teams of a dozen people will attempt to pull a tow truck that is hooked to a car for 60 feet as fast as they can by hand.

For the event, which starts at 9 a.m. and is scheduled to run through 2 p.m., the city of Alexandria will close Sixth Avenue between Irving and Broadway.

There is no charge to enter the fundraiser for the car care program, but participants are asked to raise donations for the program. As part of the event, there will also be live entertainment, kids activities, street food and crafts.

For more information on the tow truck pull, contact 320-460-7911, info@douglascountycarcare.org or www.douglascountycarcare.org.
