PARSIPPANY — The Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany presents “Touch-a-Truck,” an interactive, hands-on event at which children and their families can see emergency and construction vehicles close up. The event will be held at 1515 Route 10 East (just before Dryden Way) on Saturday, June 16, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Touch-a-Truck creates a learning experience for kids, allowing them to look, see, touch, ask questions of the operators of the trucks, and it gives them the opportunity to meet some of Parsippany’s first responders. From big rigs to emergency vehicles, children of all ages are encouraged to explore and investigate.

This year there will be Police Cars, Fire Trucks, Ambulances, Tow Trucks, Cranes, Garbage Trucks, Taxi’s and so much more…  Face Painting, a balloon artist, music and refreshments available for purchase.

Every child will receive a goody bag full of surprises including a free child’s meal at IHOP, free ice cream cone and much more.

This is a family event. Admission $5.00, or $20.00 maximum per family.

Aside from being a great time for the family, this event helps support our major initiatives. Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. Our Parsippany based group supports and sponsors many community causes.
