Kids are getting a unique opportunity to explore the vehicles they see when driving around Lufkin. The Junior League of Lufkin's Touch-A-Truck is coming up on Saturday, March 4, 2023 from 10 AM to 2 PM.

This is a free event and the kids will get hands-on with all kinds of different cars and trucks. There will be emergency, utility, construction, landscaping, transportation, and delivery vehicles.

They will also get a chance to meet the people that drive those vehicles serving our community every day. There are also ways that you can help keep this free event going for everyone.

So Much To Do At Touch A Truck In Lufkin

Not only will there be all of those different types of vehicles for the kids to see, but there are also other activities that will be going on at the Lufkin Pitser Garrison Convention Center.

Those will include face painting, a petting zoo, and an inflatable slide. An armband to get in on that part of things is just $5.

There will also be food trucks, so you might want to bring some lunch money. Admission is free, but the extra events will require this armband. You can personally help an entire classroom get in on this.
