Wilton’s biggest trucks are rolling in for the 2018 Touch-A-Truck community event, hosted by The Children’s Day School of Wilton (CDSW).
On Saturday, May 19, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at Middlebrook Middle School (131 School Rd.), kids of all ages will have the opportunity to get up close, climb on, and take photos with cars and trucks all shapes and sizes. Look for fire trucks, police cars, an ambulance, cranes, dump trucks, school buses, big rigs, postal trucks and so much more.
In addition to exploring the variety of cars and trucks, kids will have the opportunity to experience Robbie’s Ranch petting zoo, take a ride on the Roaming Railroad, be amazed by the balloon animals from Twisty Bros, take photos with their favorite princesses from A Moment of Magic Foundation, get their faces painted, listen to music and jump in the bounce house, just to name a few of the family-friendly activities.
Because it can get pretty loud during the event, organizers have scheduled a quiet hour from 11 a.m.-noon for families with sensitivity to noise. No horns or sirens will be used during that time.
Touch-a-Truck would not be possible without the generous donations from Wilton-based community organizations. This year’s premier sponsors include Melissa & Doug and ASML.
The community event will go on rain or shine. Admission is $30 per family, and tickets can be purchased at the gate. Concessions will be available on site. All proceeds will benefit CDSW.
