We Had at Blast at Touch A Truck Wilmington NC

The Junior League of Wilmington’s Fifth Annual Touch a Truck Event at Mayfaire Town Center

Sunday, April 6, 2014 was our first time participating in the Junior League’s Touch-a-Truck event and it was an absolute blast! We brought out our Mercedes-Benz party style limo and pulled up among the helicopters, fire trucks, and hoping the kids would be just as excited to sit in a limo than blast the horn of a bus. Just to be sure, we stocked the cooler with juice boxes and Rice Krispy treats that were gone within the first 2 hours. Hundreds of kids and their parents stopped by to say hello and check out Wilmington’s Perfect Ride for themselves. We had a great time and the kids did too!

We can’t wait to participate again next year. See photos from the 2014 Touch a Truck event below.

Touch a Truck is an educational community event that provides children with a hands-ON opportunity to see and touch heavy machinery and meet the people who build, protect and serve the Wilmington community. Kids of all ages can explore vehicles like a fire engine, cement truck, school bus, tow truck, weather truck, bulldozers and so much more.  Touch a Truck hosted plenty of activities for children of all ages including games, face painting, bouncy castles and live music.

Proceeds from Touch A Truck benefit the Junior League of Wilmington’s partnered organizations: New Hanover County Schools and the Blue Ribbon Commission.
