11th Annual Touch-A-Truck Event

- | McCook Point Park

On Saturday, May 19, 2018 (rain date Sunday), the East Lyme Auxiliary of Child and Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut and the East Lyme Parks and Recreation Department will co-sponsor our tenth annual Touch A Truck. This family event will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at McCook Point Park in Niantic, CT.

Children can climb the various vehicles and sit in the driver’s seat. They will be able to see, touch, and interact with the wide variety of vehicles and learn their functions. This unique event will feature vehicles from the town of East Lyme, the US Navy and Coast Guard, law enforcement, fire departments, commercial companies, industrial companies and rental companies.

Once children have explored all of the various vehicles, they can go on to experience activities, crafts, face painting, hair beading and balloon animals. Roaming Railroad will be on hand to give rides around the park for an additional charge. The delight and fun of all of these activities can be captured in memory by snapping a picture in Crest Ford’s special photo van.

Of course, active children work up an appetite. Throughout the day, there will be hotdogs, hamburgers, ice cream, kettle corn, and drinks for sale. No one should go home hungry, but they will go home happy and tired!

The requested donation is $4 per person. Children age two and under are admitted free.

Don’t miss this fun family event! All types of trucks, fire engines, tractors, food, face painting, and photos – there is no better way to spend a day with your favorite children! Proceeds benefit the work of Child & Family Agency of Southeastern CT as it meets the needs of over seventeen thousand children and their families annually in our communities.
