The third annual Touch-A-Truck event will be from 10 a.m.- 1 p.m., May 10 at the Rosehill Community Center in Mukilteo.
Vehicles from utility and emergency departments, including Snohomish County Fire District 1, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Department, Snohomish County Search and Rescue, Washington State Patrol, Community Transit and other public safety agencies will be on display for the public to see and “touch.”
The event allows families to get up close and personal with the vehicles they see in the streets. Children will be allowed to get in some of the vehicles and pretend they are in control. Admission is free; however the Mukilteo Recreation Department asks that event guests bring a non-perishable food item(s) to donate to the Mukilteo Food Bank. Food donations will receive a raffle ticket for a prize drawing. Prizes include summer camps registrations and gift certificates to Ride the Ducks of Seattle. You do not have to be present to win.
New for 2014, the event has partnered with the Mukilteo Fire Department’s Public Safety Fair to have vehicles, activities, and demonstrations about public safety. These activities help educate children on what to do during emergency situations as well as safety in their own homes and communities.
The 2014 Touch-A-Truck will take place at the Rosehill Community Center in the Lower parking lot as well as 3rd Street between Lincoln and Park Ave. Parking for the event will be available in the Rosehill Community Center upper parking lot, the St. Johns Church parking lot on 3rd Street, and on the streets surrounding the community center. The event will take place rain or shine. The Rosehill Community Center is located at 304 Lincoln Avenue in Mukilteo.
