The buses weren't the biggest vehicles on the school grounds at Johnston Elementary this week. That's because it was Big Toy Day.

Local race car driver Anthony Miller may not have had the biggest vehicle on campus, but it is one of the fastest.

Students learned how the numerous vehicles on display are used everyday as people do their jobs.

"Not only seeing the big toys and all of the excitement of these big trucks and all of the machines that make Asheville work, but they're learning from our emergency services. They're getting out there and are learning what it's like to have a great job here in Asheville," Asheville Kiwanis Club president Jensen Gelfond said.

And Brandy Vick with Star 104.3 uses her van to haul the equipment to events and festivals to promote the radio station.

The event was sponsored by the Asheville Kiwanis Club, which adopted the school this year.

About 285 students participated in Big Toy Day, an event that was a reward for their positive behavior.
