With the support of several local businesses, the city of Federal Way, local union chapters, first responders/police and more, Federal Way Parks and Recreation is hosting Touch-a-Truck, scheduled for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 18 in the parking lot adjacent to the Performing Arts and Events Center (31510 Pete von Reichbauer Way S.).
The free Touch-a-Truck event is not only a great way for children to see first responder vehicles up close, but trucks, heavy equipment, and other “vehicles” from a variety of trades, which helps them to gain a better understanding of the vehicles and equipment they may come in contact with from a distance, but never get to see closely.
Children will have the opportunity to climb on, in and all over many of the vehicles to see firsthand what they look like and how they work.
New this year, organizers have partnered with the Performing Arts and Event Center to add a kids obstacle course, bounce house and other fun activities.
This event will happen rain or shine.
