Climbing into firetrucks and other D.C. government vehicles as a member of the general public usually is frowned upon, unless you have authorization to do so.

And that approval is coming Saturday.

A menagerie of city vehicles is rolling onto the RFK Stadium campus as part of the annual D.C. Department of Public Works “Truck Touch.”

If you go to the event, you might want to get there in the morning. No rain is expected then, according to the National Weather Service. But Saturday afternoon and evening could include showers and storms, as the temperature rises to the lower 80s. Sunday is expected to bring more rain, with a high temperature in the mid 80s.

Here’s what else you might want to know for this weekend:
