The ever popular
Touch A Truckís annual event is this Saturday, July 14, from 10 a.m. to 2
p.m. at Sunset Hill Farm Park, at 775 Meridian Road, in Liberty Township.
Children will get a
chance to get behind the wheel of more than 70 vehicles and rub elbows with
their hometown heroes. There will be monster trucks, fire trucks, police
cars, garbage truck, limousine, helicopter and much more.
The cost of
admission is $20.00 cash per car load and includes access to all
vehicles, a foam field, tiny tot riding experience, wagon rides, and
transportation themed bounce house. The first 100 kids in the gate will
receive a free pair of goggles provided by Waterway Pool and Spa and a die
cast car. There will be food available for purchase during the event.
One hundred percent
of the proceeds benefit Parents as Teachers of Porter County and will go to
provide educational programming for children 3-5.
