It’s Almost Time for Touch a Truck!

Some Like it LOUD!

The 6th annual Touch a Truck event will be on Saturday, March 30 from 9am – 2pm in the parking lot beside the Laurel Jones County Library.

Touch a Truck is 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 our guests and our furry friends, pets are not allowed at Touch a Truck.

Tickets are $5 each at the event.  Family 4-pack tickets can be purchased in advance for $15.  Children 2 and under are FREE.

New This Year

We are thrilled to add high-flying fun to our event this year with hot air balloon rides!  The hot air balloon will be stationed in the green space just off I-59 on the corner of Leontyne Price Blvd.  Start your adventure and pay admission here, then truck on down the road to the big event! While Touch a Truck is a rain or shine event, hot air balloon rides will only be available if weather conditions permit.  As always, the safety of our attendees is our top priority.
