Trucks are not the only thing coming to Wilton’s fourth Annual Touch-A-Truck Community Event on Saturday, Sept. 19, from 11 to 3 at Middlebrook Middle School, 131 School Road.
In addition to all types of trucks youngsters see out on the road, there will be pony rides, “Roaming Railroad,” a bouncy house, face painting, concessions, and musical entertainment by Wilton Steel Band.
As it has done in the past, Touch-A-Truck will feature a silent hour from 11 to noon, when there will be no loud noises to frighten sensitive youngsters.
Visitors will be able to sit, climb and explore many types of trucks and other types of vehicles. Admission is $30 per family.
Before the fun even begins, children ages 2 to 6 are invited to enter a coloring contest. They may color this picture using crayons, markers or colored pencils. Pictures will be judged on creativity and the winner will receive a prize and free admission for their family to Touch a Truck. Entries must be dropped off at Wilton Deli, 379 Danbury Road, or CDSW, 111 Ridgefield Road, by 3 p.m., Sept. 11.
The winner will have their photo in The Bulletin on Sept. 17.
Many sponsors are responsible for the growth of Touch-a-Truck in Wilton this year. Premier sponsors include Aggreko, ASML, and News 12 Connecticut.
