Back for a third year, the NOW Touch-A-Truck event returns to the Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park with new activities and family fun! Events will run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. both Saturday & Sunday.
The Touch-A-Truck features a variety of trucks and heavy equipment for children of all ages to climb and explore. From dump trucks, emergency vehicles, bulldozers, to tractors and even cranes – the NOW Touch-A-Truck will have it all! Entry fee is $10 per carload (that means mom, dad, kids, grandma, grandpa, and anyone else you can fit in your car!) – and covers parking and access to all Touch-A-Truck vehicles at the event.
NEW Attractions for 2017:
For an additional fee, NOW will offer the following activities…
Tuff Buddy Fun Mud Run – NOW has partnered with our friends at Green Valley Crossing to bring a mud run obstacle course designed exclusively for kids to the Touch-A-Truck! Entry to the Tuff Buddy is $10, with free t-shirts for participants while supplies last! Prepare to get dirty, but don’t worry – “dirt don’t hurt”!
Hot Air Balloon Rides* – (SUNDAY ONLY – 9:00 to 11:00 a.m.) Come take a ride into the sky with the Re/Max hot air balloon – Only $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12!
