Some Like it LOUD!
The 4th annual Touch a Truck® event will be on Saturday, April 8th from 9am – 2pm in the parking lot beside the Laurel Jones County Library. We would like to extend a special thanks to this year’s signature sponsor, BancorpSouth!
What is Touch a Truck®?
It’s a fun family event that offers hands-on opportunities for children (and children-at-heart) to EXPLORE, CLIMB and TOUCH trucks, emergency response vehicles, heavy machinery and other equipment. Kids have the opportunity to get behind the wheel and rub elbows with their hometown heroes, while exploring their favorite vehicles including big rigs, fire engines, police cars, construction trucks, tractors and much more. So put your imagination in gear and go!
Know Before You Go
We understand that some like it loud and others don’t. That’s why we’ll have two opportunities for those with sensitive hearing to enjoy this event. We will observe no horn hour from 10am – 11am and from 1pm – 2pm.
This is an outdoor event, so dress accordingly and be prepared to climb! For the safety of guests and our furry friends, pets are not allowed at the BancorpSouth Touch a Truck® event.
Tickets are $5 each at the event. Family 4-pack tickets can be purchased in advance for $15. Children 2 and under are FREE.
