This year Touch-a-Truck takes place from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 10.
“This is one of our most popular events of the year,” Gail Kimberling, Community Center director, says. “It’s also the longest-running, having started just after the Community Center opened in 1980.”
Touch-a-Truck provides an up-close look at vehicles of all shapes and sizes, from bulldozers and garbage trucks to rescue rigs and watercraft. Weather permitting, a medical services helicopter is scheduled to land in the parking lot.
The event also features free refreshments as well as children’s games, clowns, face painting and raffle prizes. There may even be a watermelon seed spitting contest this year, too.
Touch-a-Truck is for all ages, and admission is free!
