Touch a Truck event

Kids last year had a blast checking out some big, fun vehicles at the annual Touch a Truck event. 

Glendale’s annual Touch a Truck event takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19.

Sponsored by Walmart, Touch A Truck is a free family event, held at the Westgate Entertainment District east parking lot, 6770 N. Sunrise Blvd.

The vehicles will vary in size and scope. Tow trucks, dump trucks, commercial bucket loaders, sanitation vehicles, backhoes and an 18-wheeler will be on display.

Along with trucks, there are special activities for children including a sand play area, a miniature roadway with toy vehicles called Tiny Tot Drivers.

At the Big Dig, children can try their hand at scooping sand with a contraption that works like a backhoe.

The Home Depot will offer a Kids Workshop for children to build their own wooden tow truck, while supplies last.
