The Junior League of Seattle presents Touch-A-Truck: an event offering children a hands-on opportunity to explore heavy machinery and meet the people who build, protect and serve the Greater Seattle community.
Vehicles on display may include construction trucks, utility vehicles, emergency responders, tractor-trailers, buses, and monster trucks. Children of all ages are allowed to creatively explore the trucks of all sizes with guidance from the respective professionals who explain the equipment and discuss the work they accomplish with such machinery. The event also includes activities such as food vendors, games, crafts, and other local vendors.
