Heading into our fourth year of Touch a Truck, this event has become highly anticipated by kids and families year after year. This year we are bringing it back to Kansas Avenue to showcase all the new construction downtown that has been completed! If you haven’t been downtown lately, you are sure to be impressed with the new Downtown! Last year nearly 5,000 kids and families converged on downtown over the Labor Day Weekend to climb on and explore the equipment. This year we are bringing it back and want you to be a part of the excitement!
Downtown Topeka Touch a Truck is held annually over Labor Day weekend in celebration of the people who build, protect and serve in our community. Touch a Truck offers children an up close, hands-on opportunity to explore heavy machinery, safety vehicles and other cool trucks that one otherwise would not be able to experience close up; as well as ask questions of the people that operate these machines.
The event will be held Saturday, September 3, 2016 from 9:30 am – 1:30 pm on Kansas Avenue between 10th and 8th street.
The event is free to attend. Attendees are asked to bring a canned good as their admission. Goods will be donated to the Harvesters Community Food Networks food bank. Last year 2200 pounds of food was donated!
