The City of Round Rock's Parks and Recreation Department will hold a FREE "Touch a Truck" event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 3 at Old Settlers Park (corner of Red Bud Lane and TC Oatts Lane) for kids of all ages!
Name a child who wouldn't love to climb aboard a fire truck, helicopter, big rig or bulldozer! Touch a Truck provides a unique opportunity for children to explore vehicles of all types - public service, emergency, utility, construction, transportation, delivery and just plain cool - all in one place. Those young and young at heart will be allowed to touch, climb on and ask questions about their favorite trucks in a safe, supervised environment. Accompanying personnel will teach the children about the equipment displayed and how these machines help us and our community. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. There will be a "no horn hour" for those with sensitive ears or who do not respond well to loud noises from 1 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Bring out the entire family to enjoy sitting in these trucks and learning about what they do, how they work, and how they benefit our community. Along with all of the vehicles, there will also be a Kids Fun Zone with various activities. Food and beverage vendors will also be onsite. The event is FREE, but guests are encouraged to bring a canned item food donation to the Round Rock Serving Center.
