Glendale’s Touch A Truck event returns to Westgate Saturday


Reach out and touch a truck, and other large vehicles of all sorts, at Glendale’s annual Touch A Truck event 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19 at the Westgate Entertainment District east parking lot, 6770 N. Sunrise Blvd.

The vehicles will vary in size and scope, and some of the types will be commercial and industrial vehicles like a tow truck, dump  truck, commercial bucket loader, sanitation vehicle, backhoe and an 18-wheeler. Along with trucks, there are special activities for children including a sand play area, a miniature roadway with toy vehicles called Tiny Tot Drivers and The  Big Dig where children can try scooping sand with a contraption that works like a  backhoe. New this year Home Depot will offer a kids workshop for children to build their own wooden tow truck, while supplies last.

Admission and parking for this event are free.
