There’s just something fascinating about kids and big trucks.
The 15th annual ‘TOUCH-A-TRUCK’ event, Saturday, September 28 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., will give kids a chance to give them a closer look. This year the event will be held at the Boulevard Mall.
Children of all ages can get behind the wheel of their favorite vehicles and to personally meet Las Vegas’ everyday heroes. Parents and their kids can get a close-up experience with big rigs, fire trucks, police cars, construction trucks and more as they learn about what makes each vehicle so unique.
This year the organization is expecting roughly 70 featured vehicles and more than 7,000 engine enthusiasts to attend. Children who are more sensitive to loud noises can participate during the horn-free time from 9 to 10:30 a.m.
All proceeds will benefit Family to Family Connection. Family to Family Connection serves families with children from birth to age five in classes and programs that include pre-kindergarten readiness, development activities, visits from community partners and monthly field trips. All classes are free but require advance registration.
Tickets to TOUCH-A-TRUCK can be purchased for $6 per person at www.touchatruck.com, adults and children 2 and over. Tickets are also available for purchase at the door for $8 per person. Visit them on Facebook for more details as well.
