NORMAN — The eighth annual “Touch a Truck” event will be from 9:30 a.m. to noon April 28 at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds, 615 E Robinson St.
About 40 trucks of all kinds, including the OU Medical Center helicopter, a University of Oklahoma trolley and a news van, will be on hand for children to look at, sit in and touch.
Admission is a suggested donation of $2 per child. Proceeds benefit the children's section of the Norman Public Library.
Since its inception in 2004, “Touch a Truck” has raised more than $27,000 to buy furniture, toys and supplies for the library's children's section.
The event is sponsored annually by MOMS Club of Norman, the city's oldest organization for at-home moms and their children.
“Touch a Truck” 2012 will provide an opportunity for children to explore a wide range of vehicles that includes construction cranes, school buses, bucket trucks, police cruisers and ambulances.
Braum's Ice Cream and Dairy will feature a refrigerator truck, Dolese will bring a cement truck, and the American Red Cross will welcome visitors to its mobile emergency response center.
