Do you have any plans this Friday evening? If you have children then I highly recommend heading over to the General Motors Centre in Oshawa for the 2nd annual Touch- a- Truck Event. This FREE outdoor community event on August 22 is from 5-8pm to help raise money for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Oshawa-Whitby.
I took my son to this last year and he absolutely loved it! Where else can you go and sit inside a dump truck or military tuck? Getting up close and personal with more than 50 vehicles of all shapes and sizes will sure interest children of all ages. Plus, all the drivers of the vehicles are there as well to educate the kids on the vehicles they drive each day. Just some of the vehicle partners include: Mackie Transportation, Motor City Crane, Dufferin Concrete, GO Transit, Oshawa Fire Services, Durham Regional Police and many more.
In addition to all the vehicles they are also having camel rides, face painting, live music and Bricks 4 Kids Lego.
If you want to grab a bite to eat they will have food trucks on site which is new this year.
Don’t miss out on this event. Come out and help raise money for a worthy cause.
