Posted on August 26, 2019 By

You’ve seen them whiz by, but have you have touched some of those trucks or even sat in one? Monmouth Day Care Center (MDCC), Red Bank, is hosting its tenth “Touch-a-Truck” family event, rain or shine, Saturday, September 21, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Red Bank Middle School, 101 Harding Road.

Touch-a-Truck features vehicles of all shapes and sizes, including bulldozers, forklifts, campers, boats, and motorcycles for children to explore. Touch-a-Truck also offers carnival games, arts & crafts, face painting, making slime, legos, pumpkin painting, cupcake decorating, and more.

Amy Thomas, MDDC development coordinator, said, “Children are used to seeing these vehicles on the road but this is their opportunity to discover and learn about them upclose. My favorite part of Touch-a-Truck is bringing the community together.”

Proceeds will benefit MDCC, students, and families. Tickets cost $30 for a family pack that includes entry for a family up to four plus two wristbands for unlimited arts & crafts, carnival games, and face painting; a $10 wristband for unlimited arts & crafts, carnival games, and face painting; and $20 entry for a family up to four.
