Does your child have a love for trucks and large vehicles? Then check out Pierce County's Touch A Truck free event.

A special no horns time is scheduled from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. for sensory sensitive children.


Come explore a fire engine, dump trucks, command center, bucket truck, striper, tractor, military vehicles, school buses and so many more. New solid waste and LeMay vehicles, including a mobile shredder unit, have been added to the lineup.

Also, bring your personal documents to be shredded for free. Food donation bins will also be set up to accept canned food items for the food bank.
