TOUCH A TRUCK (SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19)
Reach out and touch a truck, and other large vehicles of all sorts, at Glendale’s annual popular Touch A Truck event this year on Saturday, Oct. 19 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Walmart Transportation Touch A Truck is a free family event, held at the Westgate Entertainment District east parking lot, 6770 N. Sunrise Blvd.
The vehicles will vary in size and scope, and just some of the types will be commercial and industrial vehicles like a tow truck, dump truck, commercial bucket loader, sanitation vehicle, backhoe and an 18-wheeler. Along with trucks, there are special activities for children including a sand play area, a miniature roadway with toy vehicles called Tiny Tot Drivers and The Big Dig where children can try their hand at scooping sand with a contraption that works like a backhoe. New this year the Home Depot will offer a Kids Workshop for children to build their own wooden tow truck, while supplies last.
Admission and parking for this fun event are free! Bring a camera to capture photos of your “crew” behind the wheel.
