The date has changed, but the SCV Senior Center’s Touch-A-Truck event is still a landmark event for children and adults who are intrigued with vehicles of all sorts and uses.
What child, or adult for that matter, wouldn’t want to climb on a fire engine, turn on a Sheriff’s or CHP vehicle siren or take a photo with a favorite movie vehicle? That’s the premise behind Touch-A-Truck, coming Saturday, Oct. 13, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at Central Park on Bouquet Canyon Road.
Admission will be a family-friendly $5 per person. All proceeds will benefit the SCV Senior Center, which offers such programs as Home Delivered Meals, Senior Respite Day Care, Handyworker construction, and Supportive Services to local seniors.
“Kids love vehicles,” commented Mayor Pro-tem Marsha McLean, who is serving as the event chair, “and now they will be able to touch their favorite things on wheels.” She noted that the event will offer a close-up look at a cavalcade of construction rigs, fire engines, sheriff’s cars, military vehicles, famous film industry cars, a TV news van, race cars and “nearly anything you can think of!” McLean concluded.
In addition, the committee is working on such kid-friendly activities as face painting, arts and crafts, bubbles, model building and more—all free with event admission.
Food trucks will offer meals and delicious treats to purchase.
Sponsorships and free exhibit space for vehicles are still available. Sponsorships include name and logo placement as well as booth space at the event. Further information and registration forms are available at the event website, myscvcoa.org/touch-a-truck. Tickets also can be purchased at that site.
