LAS VEGAS, NV – Family to Family Connection, a local nonprofit organization that provides resources to families in Nevada through parent education and early childhood development classes, has announced its 17th annual TOUCH-A-TRUCK® event on the grass at Downtown Summerlin on Saturday, April 1 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Over the years, TOUCH-A-TRUCK has become one of the community’s top family events that allow children of all ages to climb aboard and learn about their favorite vehicles and how they serve the local community. This hands-on experience will offer access to more than 60 vehicles, including fire engines, construction trucks, police cars and school buses. For those more sensitive to loud noises, 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. will be horn free. Parents and children can also enjoy a variety of food items from local food trucks and other vendors throughout the event.
“It is essential that the Las Vegas community has access to events like TOUCH-A-TRUCK,” said TOUCH-A-TRUCK Chair Carolyn Wheeler. “We strive to provide the best possible opportunities for children to improve their sensory skills, work on their physical and emotional development, make new memories and most importantly have fun!”
All proceeds will go to Family to Family Connection. Located in the Cambridge Community Center, Family to Family Connection has provided free classes and resources to families of infants and toddlers for over two decades. Family to Family Connections offers development activities, pre-kindergarten readiness courses, visits from community partners and monthly field trips. All classes are free but require advanced registration.
