Touch-A-Truck ~ A Very Special Children’s Event

On Saturday, May 18, 2013 (rain date Sunday), the East Lyme Auxiliary of Child and Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut and the East Lyme Parks and Recreation Department will co-sponsor our sixth annual Touch-A-Truck event. This is a family event that will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at McCook Point Park in Niantic, CT.

An event not to be missed, the Touch-A-Truck experience is for one and all, big and small, spend some time with us and have yourself a ball. It’s an educational experience that will make you a “hero” with your child/grandchild. Children can climb various

vehicles, sit in the driver’s seat and discover the world of trucks. They will be able to reach the sky in a cherry picker, see, touch, and interact with big trucks and learn their functions. This unique event will feature large trucks and heavy equipment from law enforcement, fire departments, commercial companies, industrial companies and rental companies.

Vehicle demonstrations will be conducted and we never know just who might make an appearance. In addition there will be face painting and craft activities for the children as well as a free photo-op. Refreshments will be available for sale.

There will be a $4.00 per person donation (ages 3 and up) to benefit the Child and Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut.

Time: 09:00 am – 02:00 pm

Location: McCook Point Park
