What child, or adult for that matter, wouldn’t want to climb on a fire engine, turn on a Sheriff’s or CHP vehicle siren or take a photo with a favorite vehicle? That’s the premise behind Touch-A-Truck, coming Saturday, October 5, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Central Park on Bouquet Canyon Road.
Admission will be a family friendly $5 per person. All proceeds will benefit the SCV Senior Center, which offers such programs as Home Delivered Meals, Arts and Recreations, Respite Care, Care Management, Health & Wellness Classes, etc. to local seniors.
“Kids love vehicles,” commented Mayor Marsha McLean, who is the event chair, “and now they will be able to touch their favorite things on wheels!” Each year we work hard to add more and more exciting and different vehicles to our event.
The committee is working on such kid-friendly activities as face painting, arts and crafts, bubbles, model building and more—all free with event admission. The City dump truck filled with balloons will repeat its popular Beach Ball Dump just after noon, with free beach balls for all guests.
Food trucks will offer meals and delicious treats to purchase. In addition, there will be a variety of entertainment, costumed characters, vendors, and kid-friendly activities for everyone to enjoy.
Sponsorships, ranging from $250 to $1,500, include name and logo placement as well as booth space at the event. If you are interested in being a sponsor, bringing a vehicle, providing an activity, becoming a vendor, or attending, contact Jennifer DeHaven at the SCV Senior Center at 661-259-9444 ext. 144 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
