SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – The Edgar May Health and Recreation Center is pleased to announce that a Touch-a-Truck event is coming to Springfield on April 28 from noon – 2 p.m. This is the same date as the 25th annual SAPCC Family Festival and effectively extends the fun that takes place inside the Riverside Middle School gymnasium from 9 a.m. to noon another two hours by moving the family outside into the parking lot for continued hands-on excitement, making this 25th year of celebrating the importance of quality experiences for young children bigger and better.
Touch-a-truck is not your typical car show. This event gives children and adults a chance to interact with not only the vehicles, but with the “heroes” that drive, operate, and maintain them. Young children can watch the tractor bucket move, see the sirens flash, hear the horns and sirens blow, and learn about safety through fun, interactive games or simple conversation. Young and old can fulfill curiosities while learning and interacting with businesses and organizations from the community.
Food vendors will be onsite to offer lunch fare, and all manner of trucks, emergency vehicles, construction equipment, farming, racing, and more are participating.
The event is still welcoming exhibitors, food vendors, safety volunteers, and in-kind sponsors and donations. If you are unable to show off a vehicle but want to contribute to the success of this free event, join the fun as a sponsor or supporter by providing food, a game, activity, or prizes! If you haven’t been contacted by the Edgar May Health and Recreation Center and would like to participate, visit our website, or call 802-885-5046 to learn more.
Touch-a-Truck is made possible through the innovative S.T.E.P. partnership between the Edgar May Health and Recreation Center and the Springfield Area Parent Child Center.
