Edmond Electric is bringing back the annual Touch-A-Truck event on Saturday, June 17, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the University of Central Oklahoma parking lot #6.
Touch-A-Truck is a fundraising event benefiting The Hope Center of Edmond, allowing kids of all ages to experience life-size vehicles and interact with community support leaders like law enforcement officers, firefighters, lineworkers, and others from local businesses. Families will have the opportunity for hands-on exploration of the many City of Edmond vehicles such as fire trucks, police cars, an Edmond Electric bucket truck, a solid waste truck, plus more from the community like tow trucks, storm tracker vehicles, hot air balloons, and construction equipment.
Admission for the Touch-A-Truck event is a suggested $2 donation with all proceeds going to The Hope Center of Edmond to benefit residents in need.
The last event displayed more than 30 vehicles, a helicopter, kid-friendly characters, and face painting for kids to enjoy and raised $6,500 for The Hope Center of Edmond.
Continuing in 2023, there will be a quiet hour from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. to accommodate those sensitive to loud noises. During this time, no horns or loud music will be allowed.
