Jackson Hole Children’s Museum to Host 6th Annual Hands-on Truck Extravaganza

by Jackson Hole. Media

Dig, dump, push, pull, rake, mow, sweep, scoop, reach, rescue! Jackson Hole Children’s Museum is pleased to host the 6th Annual Touch-A-Truck on Sunday, June 3 from 10 AM – 3 PM. Vehicles of all sorts — construction, emergency, law enforcement, food service, recreation and more — will line North King Street, open for kids of all ages to explore in a safe, supervised environment. This event offers a unique opportunity to touch the levers, switches and gears that make kids’ favorite rigs whir, as well as meet the vehicle operators who build, serve and protect our community every day.

 

In addition to the truck extravaganza, event-goers are invited to enjoy a Strider bike course hosted by Friends of Pathways, face painting, tasty food from Pinky G’s Pizzeria and Moe’s Original Bar B Que, bouncy houses, the Teton County Library Book Bike, and interactive museum exhibits. The Jackson Hole Children’s Museum at 174 North King Street will be open for exploration and play throughout the event.

 

“Touch-a-Truck is a pleasure and a thrill for the Children’s Museum to host,” said JHCM Executive Director Jean Lewis. “Each year the event gets bigger and better, thanks to our ever-growing fleet of vehicles, their dynamic operators and our enthusiastic young patrons.”

Admission to Touch-a-Truck is free, with a suggested donation of $5/person or $20/family. Questions should be directed to info@jhchildrensmuseum.org or 307.733.3996.

 

Touch-a-Truck is made possible by a long list of supporters, including title sponsor Jackson Hole Airport and supporting sponsors Bank of Jackson Hole, J Singleton Financial, Shelter Design, Skipping Stones, and Wilderness Adventures’ Base Camp.
