Touch a Truck

Where: Landmark Park
Time: 10 am - 1 pm
Cost: $7 adults; $5 for kids and FREE for children two and under and park members
Categories: Family Programs, Youth Programs

A truly unique event that offers children a hands-on opportunity to explore a variety of heavy equipment, trucks and machinery while also meeting the people who build, protect and serve our community. Parent supervision is required and cameras are highly recommended!

Touch A Truck is sponsored by WDHN, The Joy 94.3 FM, Coffman International, Holland Crane, Bedsole Ice Cream, Martin Environmental, Smoothie King and the Houston County Farm City Committee.

For kids who might be frightened by loud noises, a “quiet hour” will take place from 10 a.m.-11 a.m. During that time, there will be no honking horns or other loud noises.

Concessions will be available at the event, and the Martin Drugstore will be open selling ice cream, milkshakes and other treats. You can also bring a picnic to the park and enjoy your lunch at one of our picnic tables.
