Does your child have a love for trucks and large vehicles? Then check out Pierce County's Touch A Truck event. Kids of all ages will love to climb, run around, sit in and even honk horns of many types of trucks and vehicles.

Come explore a fire engine, dump trucks, command center, bucket truck, striper, tractor, military vehicles, school buses and so many more. New solid waste and LeMay vehicles, including a mobile shredder unit, have been added to the lineup.

Also, bring your personal documents to be shredded for free. Food donation bins will also be set up to accept canned food items for the food bank.
