Federal Way’s Touch-A-Truck event returns

Dozens of kids and their families enjoyed Federal Way’s Touch-A-Truck event on May 14.

Held at the Performing Arts and Event Center, trucks of all sizes and occupations were on display for people to explore as staff answered questions and helped show off each vehicle’s bells and whistles (but really, the sirens and horns).

Displays included SWAT vehicles from the Federal Way Police Department, South King Fire and Rescue fire trucks, Waste Management garbage trucks, UPS delivery trucks, City of Federal Way public works and parks vehicles, Tri-Med ambulances, and even The Flood Guys hydroplane, among many others.

School buses, King County Metro buses, military vehicles and tow trucks were also available for kids to tour.

The 2022 event was hosted by the Federal Way Community Center.
