More than 30 vehicles of all shapes and sizes and uses will descend on Chestnut Square Park (320 Chestnut Parkway) soon for Indian Trail’s Touch-a-Truck festival.
The event, scheduled for Saturday, March 5, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., will include SWAT vehicles, a fire truck, a Zamboni, Indian Trail Public Works vehicles, the Book Bus and much more.
The event also will include an hour, from 10 to 11 a.m., when no sirens and no lights will be used for families who wish to attend during that time.
“Our Touch-a-Truck festival is a great opportunity for kids and the young at heart to get hands-on with emergency vehicles, service vehicles and even some of the big toys our Public Works Department gets to play with every day,” said Hayden Kramer, Indian Trail’s parks and recreation director. “Not only that, but families will get to talk with the people who operate these vehicles to learn about how they work and some of the cool things they do.”
In addition to all the vehicles, Indian Trail’s Touch-a-Truck event also will feature a food truck, and kids’ activities, including a bounce house, face painting, and a make-your-own sweets bar.
This year’s event is sponsored by Capital of Indian Trail. For more information about them, visit https://capitalofindiantrail.com/.
