When I found out I was having a boy, I knew the next 18 years of my life would include a lot of dirt, mud and trucks, but I had no idea that I would actually get pretty interested in those things myself.
It’s actually not that bad hanging out with the boys sometimes, and finding fun new activities we can do as a family is fun. One of them is the annual Touch-a-Truck event in Oshawa.
This year the Touch-a-Truck event will be entering its 3rd year, and will be taking place outside of the General Motors Centre in Oshawa on Friday, August 21st from 5pm – 8pm.
Last year when we attended many of my son’s friends attended as well, and they loved climbing all over some of the cool trucks at the event.
The event is free, but making a donation to big Brothers Big Sisters shouldn’t be missed.
Children of all ages can get up close to over 40 vehicles of all shapes and sizes they normally couldn’t interact with like giant cranes and bulldozers.
Kids can also check out the camel rides provided by the Bowmanville Zoo, as well as Bricks 4 Kidz Oshawa who will have specialty vehicle Lego sets that can be built and raced. There will also be a charity BBQ from the Spectra food and beverage team.
Current vehicle partners include the Durham Regional Police, Oshawa Fire Services, St. John Ambulance, Ontario Regiment Museum, GO Transit, Durham Region Transit, NICHE LIMOS, City of Oshawa, Mackie Group, Oshawa PUC, G4S Canada, Durham Kubota, CCT Auto-Trans Inc., Durhamway Bus Lines Inc., Hard-Co Construction, Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, Canadian Red Cross, Clarington Contracting Services, Verspeeten Cartage, and more.
