SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – The Edgar May Health and Recreation Center is pleased to announce that Touch-a-Truck is returning to Springfield, Vt., April 6, from noon to 2 p.m. Once again pairing up with SAPCC and the annual Family Festival to extend the fun taking place at Riverside Middle School.
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 EdgarMay and would like to participate, visit www.myreccenter.org/touch-a-truck or call 802-885-5046 to learn more.
Touch-a-Truck is made possible through the innovative STEP partnership between the Edgar May Health and Recreation Center and the Springfield Area Parent Child Center.
