Touch A Truck open to additional vehicles and volunteers

VERO BEACH — Childcare Resources of Indian River will host its Third Annual Touch A Truck Family Festival on April 2 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Indian River County Fairgrounds. The Touch A Truck Family Festival once again promises fun for the entire family, with lots and lots of trucks for children to touch and explore, plus games, face painting, live entertainment, bounce houses, arts and crafts, and a delicious festival food court. This community-based event will feature a hands-on exhibit of various trucks such as:  emergency, transportation, construction, utility, agricultural and large equipment vehicles. Children will have the opportunity to climb aboard these vehicles, blow the horns, and discover how these complex machines operate and provide valuable services to our community. More than 60 truck professionals participated in the 2010 Festival, ranging from hot air balloons to tractor trailers.

Admission is $5 per person or $20 per family (up to five people). Event proceeds support Childcare Resources’ affordable quality childcare programs for Indian River County working families.

The Touch A Truck Family Festival planning committee is still looking for kid-friendly trucks to participate and volunteers to help the day of the event.

To share your truck or vehicle with children and families at the Festival, contact Leah Blythe, Truck Chair at 407.923.0340 or email
