2016-04-27 · By Editor
Councilwoman Suzie Price is partnering with Justin Rudd’s Community Action Team to bring the 2nd Annual Touch-A-Truck to Long Beach on Sunday, May 1, 2016. Touch-A-Truck is a free, family event that offers children a hands-on opportunity to explore working trucks of all types and to meet the people who protect and serve the community.
“I am proud to showcase the vehicles that are used by our City’s heroic men and women,” Councilwoman Price said in a statement.
Kids, teens, and adults will have the opportunity to sit in the driver’s seats and explore more than 90 vehicles. The Long Beach Touch-A-Truck takes place from 9 a.m. til 12:30. The first half hour is only for kids with special needs and handicaps, and the Boys & Girls Club members. Vehicles may stay longer, if they can.
More than 5,000 attendees are expected so pre-registration required for each person for this Sunday’s “Long Beach Touch-A-Truck” interactive event at 1 Granada Ave. If your plans change and you will no longer be attending Long Beach Touch-A-Truck, please log back in and cancel/adjust your order here: https://2016touchatruck.eventbrite.com.
