The Junior League of Wilmington’s Touch a Truck is an opportunity to let them climb and explore a variety of machines–a fire engine, cement truck, school bus, tow truck, weather truck, race car, monster truck, bulldozers and more.

“We are geared up for another big-wheeling family fun time at this year’s Touch a Truck,” Paige Kon, Touch a Truck committee co-chairwoman, said.

According to the Junior League, more than 1,800 people attended last year’s event.

The sixth annual fundraising event will run from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday on the Mayfaire Town Center event lawn, directly behind Ulta and World Market. The first hour will be horn- and light-free for smaller children who may be frightened or distracted.

This family friendly activity encourages kids of all ages to explore more than 20 vehicles. Operators will be on hand to explain how their big trucks work, and a helicopter will even land onsite during the afternoon.

There will also be hayrides, a moon bounce and live music throughout the day. Admission is $6 ($20 for a family of four). Proceeds benefit Junior League’s community service projects at New Hanover County schools.

The nonprofit Junior League of Wilmington is a member of Junior Leagues International, a global organization dedicated to education and charitable outreach.
