What: The Junior League of Phoenix (JLP) presents the 7th Annual Touch-A-Truck
As one of JLP’s signature fundraisers, Touch-A-Truck is a family-friendly event that provides children with hands-on learning opportunities to explore a variety of vehicles and to meet the people that build, protect and serve Valley communities.
Vehicles on display routinely include construction trucks, emergency responders, tractor trailers, utility trucks and a helicopter. Children will be able to explore the vehicles up close and learn about their purpose and function in the community. The event also features a DJ, local mascots, interactive educational games, bounce houses, slides, face painters, food trucks and more.
When: Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Back again this year is a horns-free hour from 9 a.m. - 10 a.m., created specifically for children with special needs and sensitive ears in mind. During the horns-free hour, attendees will be able to enjoy the event without horn honking or disruptive noises.
Where: Aviano Community Park, 3975 E Lockwood Dr., Phoenix, AZ 85050
Why: Funds raised from Touch-A-Truck will help support the mission of the Junior League of Phoenix, including JLP community programs and leadership training programs.
