1,200 turn out for Touch-A-Truck in Federal Way | Slideshow

Approximately 1,200 parents and children got up close and personal with all of the vehicles and equipment that build, serve and protect the community during the city’s Touch-A-Truck event on Saturday.

During the event, Mayor Jim Ferrell led a pack of kids who climbed on a police SWAT armored vehicle.

Attendees also climbed inside semi-tractor trucks, school buses, a mobile crane and other vehicles.

Recreation supervisor John Hutton called the first-time event "an unbelievable success. Kids loved it. Parents loved it. We'll be bringing back Touch-A-Truck next year as an annual event."
