Touch A Truck 2018
On Saturday, May 19, 2018*** the East Lyme Auxiliary of Child and Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut and the East Lyme Parks and Recreation Department will co-sponsor our eleventh annual Touch A Truck event. This family event will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at McCook Point Park in Niantic. There will be a Horn Free Hour from 9 to 10AM especially for the younger set and for noise-sensitive children.
Fire Engines, Food, Face Painting, and Photos – there is no better way to spend a day with your favorite children! The main event is, of course, Trucks! Children will be able to climb, steer, blow horns, sit in the driver’s seat and imagine in an amazing array of vehicles.
This unique event will feature vehicles from law enforcement, fire departments, commercial companies, industrial companies and rental companies.
Once they have explored all of the various vehicles, the children can go on to experience crafts, face painting, hair beading and balloon animals. Roaming Railroad will be on hand to give rides around the park for an additional charge.
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 under age 2 are admitted free.
Proceeds benefit the work of Child & Family Agency of Southeastern CT as it meets the needs of over eighteen thousand children and their families annually in our communities.
