Touch A Truck Event 2018 at Douglas County Fairgrounds
3rd Annual Event on Saturday, September 29
As a father of three, I have seen and played with my fair share of toy cars and trucks. When they were younger they would watch in awe as a fire truck or ambulance raced down the road. My nine-year-old still gets excited when he sees the big tractors digging their way to a new neighborhood or a plow truck pushes snow in the winter. Heck, even I still catch myself watching the big machines work. I guess I’m just a big kid. Well, big kids and little kids alike will get a kick out of the Touch A Truck event happening September, 29th. This year’s event is going to be bigger and better than ever. In fact, it’s moved to the Douglas County Fairgrounds.
Cars, Trucks, Choppers and More
The Touch A Truck event will be a ton of fun for kids of all ages as they can get up close and personal with the giant vehicles that amaze us all. Kids can hop in and sit the driver’s seat and explore city plow trucks, fire trucks, police cars, various military vehicles and more. They can visit with the drivers to learn how each vehicle works and how it helps our Castle Rock community.
Get to Know our Local Safety Officers
In addition to checking out some really cool vehicles, the Touch A Truck event is also a great chance to meet some really cool people in our community. “This is a great opportunity for our public safety personnel to connect with members of our community,” said Police Chief Jack Cauley. “We are looking forward to working with our partners to give families a unique experience with these impressive vehicles.”
Families can enjoy and learn from unique and exciting demonstrations that will happen throughout the day.
No Horn Hour
If you are concerned about the noise from various horns and engines, The Castle Rock Police Department has committed to a “No Horn” time period from 9 AM – 10 AM for those who are sensitive for loud noises.
You can also enjoy music and tasty treats from local food trucks and have fun in a few bounce houses. We had a blast at this event last year! My boys love climbing in and out of the trucks, meeting the service men and women and of course, honking the horns. Mark your calendars for the third annual Touch a Truck event Saturday, September 29thh from 9 AM – 2 PM at The Douglas County Fairgrounds. Learn more about this fun event here.
