Description

Please join us at the bigger and better 4th Annual “Touch-A-Truck Event on Saturday, June 9, 2018 at the University of Redlands Ted Runner Stadium Parking Lot! You won’t believe the fun you'll have (unless you've come before).

“Touch-A-Truck” is an affordable, family-friendly community event put on by Rotary Club of Redlands and other partners with tremendous support from numerous private companies, non-profit organizations, and governmental agencies. Dozens of vehicles – emergency vehicles, transport vehicles, tow trucks, public health and safety trucks, busses, etc. -- are positioned in the parking lot of the University of Redlands’ Ted Runner Stadium, and the attendees can climb into the cabs, honk the horns, examine the equipment, flash the lights, and talk to the men and women who work in and with the vehicles about how they use their unique vehicles to do their jobs. The kids (and some of the adults) find it thrilling to examine “up close and personal” the vehicles they may see around them all the time, and maybe, some they might never have seen before.

Adjacent to the truck lot is a free “Kids’ Zone” with crafts, games, and educational exhibits which adds to the fun and enjoyment for the whole family. There are booths set up by various businesses, organizations, governmental agencies, and clubs who will distribute free books, public health and safety material, talk about their company or non-profit, interact with the families, and, in many cases, show what they do that will improve the quality of life for the attendees. Refreshments are available for purchase from (what else?) food trucks!

The 2018 event will run one day on June 9th from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM with the first hour-and-a-half set aside as a “No Noise Ninety Minutes” so that very young children and other persons who might have an adverse reaction to sudden, loud noises may participate undisturbed. There is no alcohol advertised, sold, or permitted, and the use of tobacco products are not allowed at the venue.

Proceeds from this event go 50/50 toward Rotary Initiatives and the YMCA's "Safety Around Water" (SAW) Program. It is our hope to bring water safety training to every 2nd-grade student in the Redlands Unified School District free of charge!

For more information or to inquire about participating in 2018 as a partner, sponsor, or vehicle provider, email trucks@redlandsrotary.org.
