As children, we all loved (and probably still love) big trucks -- fire trucks, big green tractors and so much more. A free event coming to Lubbock will let us all get back in touch with our inner child.

Touch-a-Truck is put on by the Lubbock Junior League and brings local kiddos face to face with big trucks, equipment and their operators. The one-day event brings out thousands of children and adults to see and touch with machinery, working vehicles, tractors, unusual equipment and so much more.

As in years past, this is still a free event to the public and this year’s event will be on Saturday, April 13th, 2024 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. They will also offer a horn-free hour from 9 to 10 a.m. for people who want to take their kiddos then and not worry about all the noise.

In April 2019 they had more than 2,500 children and adults who came to see 26 pieces of equipment and trucks. It's a great time for all ages and a come-and-go event. The attendees get to meet the operators of the machines and learn about what it takes to do their jobs and how the equipment works.
