Touch-A-Truck, vroom-vroom! Load up your family in the car and start your engines to head over to one of the fabulous Indianapolis area Touch-A-Truck events listed in this guide! Kids LOVE these events, especially the preschool crowd and younger school-aged kids. Your family will be able to explore various vehicles by climbing into, on, and around. You’ll see and get to climb behind the wheel of police cars and firetrucks, ambulances, garbage trucks, and construction vehicles! Tractors! Yes, there will be tractors.
We suggest that you bring ear protection for babies and children to protect their ears from noise and to prevent them from becoming startled by the sudden and unexpected sounds of horns and sirens. Don’t forget sunscreen and bring water bottles to help your family stay cool and hydrated in the heat.
Touch-A-Truck gives your little ones the opportunity to get in the driver’s seat and touch the trucks they love so much—everything from big rigs, to farm trucks, to rescue vehicles. Indy area Touch-A-Truck events are among the best-loved activities for local families.
