Our family so looks forward to Touch-A-Truck, an annual event that allows kids and their families to get up close to some of the biggest, loudest trucks on the streets in Austin. This year’s event takes place on May 7, 2016 on the spacious grounds of Camp Mabry. For kids who love trucks, buses, diggers and more, this is THE event to go to in Austin.
not only can kids climb into the vehicles, honk their horns, and push their buttons, they can also chat with the drivers of those vehicles to give them a better understanding of the role that the trucks play in our community. And with Camp Mabry as the location, there is be plenty of space for kids to run excitedly from truck to truck!
Additional activities include:
- Live music
- Food trucks
- Petting zoo
- Face painting
- Barrel-train rides
Proceeds from Touch-A-Truck benefit the Austin Children’s Shelter, a local nonprofit dedicated to ending child abuse, sexual assault and exploitation through prevention, intervention and advocacy for change.
