Touch a truck 3

Family Fun at the County’s Touch-a-Truck Event in Rockville (VIDEO)

Children in Montgomery County had a chance to explore trucks, climb trees and turn on police sirens at the county’s first Touch-a-Truck event.

Whether they were climbing into the cab of a backhoe, or riding in a bucket truck parents and children learned about the trucks that help upkeep Montgomery County’s urban parks.

The county’s Touch-a-Truck event was held on April 10 at the Wall Park in Rockville. It was hosted by Montgomery Parks and had approximately 15 trucks among them excavators, bobcat, gator truck, ATV and more.

MyMCMedia’s Aline Barros talked to county residents, parks officials and children about this event that aims to show what it takes to maintain green spaces in the community.
