A fire truck racing down a street; thinking how fun a dump truck would be to operate; wondering just how many Lego you could fit in a limo or if you would ever get to sit in the bucket of a tractor?

On Saturday, April 11, 2015 in Downtown Laurel, your business or organization could be a part of an event that brings out that curious child inside us all.

This event will be heavily advertised throughout the area.

Everyone will be ready to Touch A Truck! Will you be there, ready to greet them? You don’t want to miss this fun and educational opportunity to reach families throughout Jones County!

What is Touch a Truck?

Laurel Main Street’s Touch A Truck event gives local children and adults alike a chance to fulfill those childhood curiosities while learning and interacting with the businesses of the community. Touch A Truck is different than a car show. Kids can interact with not only the trucks, but with the “heroes” that drive and operate them. They can hear the sirens, watch the tractor bucket move, and learn about the safety of the vehicles through fun, interactive games. Last year’s most popular exhibitors were those who provided an activity, or had staff on hand to describe the inner workings of their biggest and best machines.

Be a Touch a Truck Sponsor!

If you don’t have a vehicle that your company can show off or want to contribute further to the success of this great event, you can join the fun as an event sponsor!

Sponsors and exhibitors will not only contribute to a fun and educational day downtown, but will also help to support the Laurel Main Street Facade & Amenities Grant projects. Funds raised from this event will go directly to plant rows of trees along Carrol Gartin Boulevard that will serve to camouflage the backs of the buildings and add natural beauty to the downtown area.

Sponsors may bring banners, signage, decorations and giveaways to promote their business!
