Federal Way Parks and Recreation is hosting the annual Touch a Truck event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 19, in the parking lot adjacent to the Performing Arts and Events Center, 31510 Pete von Reichbauer Way S.
Touch a Truck events allow children to get an up-close look at first responder vehicles, trucks, heavy equipment and other “vehicles” from a variety of trades.
The event is intended to help children 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 get to climb on, in and all over many of the vehicles to see firsthand what they look like and how they work.
This year’s event will include a special element with Steve Huff Motorsports, which will bring its Pro-Lite class record-holding hydroplane, “Agitator 98.” The event has the support of many local businesses, the City of Federal Way, local union chapters, first responders, police and more.The event will happen rain or shine.
