Touch-a-Truck



The city of Glendale invites kids of all ages to discover trucks, finding out how they run, climbing through them and exploring the worlds in which they work at the Walmart Transportation Touch-a-Truck event on Saturday, Oct. 20. The free family event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Westgate Entertainment District east parking lot, 6770 N. Sunrise Blvd.

Commercial and industrial vehicles will include a tow truck, dump truck, commercial bucket loader, sanitation vehicle, backhoe and an 18-wheeler. In addition, the Glendale Police Bomb Squad truck and robot will be on site, as well as the US Forest Service with a fire vehicle. Find out exactly what a mini excavator, a skid steer, a motor grader and a wheel loader look like, and exactly what they do on a job site.

Along with the trucks, there are special activities for children including a sand play area, a miniature roadway with toy vehicles called Tiny Tot Drivers and The Big Dig where children can try their hand at scooping sand with a contraption that works like a backhoe.

Admission and parking for this fun event is free! Bring a camera to capture photos of your “crew” behind the wheel.

The Walmart Transportation Touch-a-Truck is produced by the city of Glendale Public Facilities, Recreation and Special Events Department, and presented by Westgate Entertainment District and Diamondback Materials.
