NORTH PORT — The annual North Port Public Works “Road-E-O” kicks off this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Public Works Administration Building, 1100 N. Chamberlain Blvd. The Public Works employees will maneuver machinery to compete in obstacle courses — and five lucky attendants will also get a chance to compete on the course.

When residents enter the event, they get a pamphlet and on the back of five random pamphlets is a “golden ticket.” The recipients of the golden tickets get a chance to ride in the equipment through the obstacle course.
