Touch A Truck

Children of All Ages, Sponsors, Exhibitors Invited to Touch-A-Truck

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, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Central Park on Bouquet Canyon Road. Admission will be a family friendly $5 per person.

Vehicles scheduled to make an appearance include: American Medical Response, CA Rasmussen Tractors, Camelot Moving Truck, Castaic Water Company, CHP, City of Santa Carita Vehicles, LA County Fire Department, US Forestry Department, LA Sheriff’s Department, Pan Towing, KHTS Fire Truck, Golden Oaks Fire Truck, Waste Management, Burrtec, UCLA Critical Care Unit and many more. Don’t forget to visit the Grilled Cheese Truck!

“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, MB2 Raceway, magicians, drum circle and more—all free with event admission. The Beach Ball Drop is scheduled to take place just after noon, with free beach balls for all guests.

All of this is made possible by the support of our Sponsors: City of Santa Clarita, Santa Clarita Magazine, Waste Management and Paul & Lauren McGuire.

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.
