What better for kids to get outside and have some fun by touching and climbing on trucks they have seen around town. What kid doesn’t want to jump on a firetruck and pretend they are putting out fires or sitting high on a dump truck pretending to dump a load of dirt. Touch A Truck events have been setup just for this reason, to let kids imagine what it would be like.
