This free event is a community-wide happening where both kids of all ages and adults have the opportunity to see, touch, and play while learning about over 200 cool vehicles-from fire trucks to motorcycles, cement trucks to police cars, delivery trucks to garbage trucks, and airplanes! How often does one get to blow the horn of a Big Rig, blast the siren of a Police Cruiser or swing high above the trees in a Bucket Truck? Drivers and operators will be on hand to assist in your exploration. Additional favorite activities will include events involving "water" such as Firemen's Foam and water spray. A hayride, petting zoo, food vendors and other special attractions help to add to the event's appeal. Parental supervision is required and cameras are highly recommended so folks can capture the day's adventures and take home many wonderful memories to share.
"Touch a Truck...Wheels, Wings and Water" is the largest event of its kind in the Southeast and was awarded "Best New Event" in 2010 by the Virginia Recreation and Park Society. This event is sponsored by Roanoke County Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism.
