Fire trucks. Construction equipment. Police cars and motorcycles. Bounce houses. Face painting. Bubble making. Food trucks. Live music. And more. Bringing major smiles to the faces of Greenwich-area family members of all ages.
The 18th Annual Touch A Truck event/fundraiser was hosted by the Junior League of Greenwich on Sunday, June 10th from 10-2PM at Greenwich Town Hall.
The event featured firetrucks, including Greenwich’s new brush truck and an antique firetruck -- as well as ambulances, a backhoe, a snowplow, a vacuum truck and more. There were also bounce houses, the Bubble Bus, the Fun Bus, ride-on Zoobots, Roaming Railways, slot car racing and RC Monster Trucks.
Engaging live shows were held by Greenwich Audubon, Mad Science, Tae Kwon Do and Kung Fu. There were also live musical performances by Jay and Ray -- as well as Songs for Seeds PLUS a variety of Food Trucks.
The skies were overcast - but the weather was warm and dry, leading to an excellent turnout for this popular event (of approximately 3,000 attendees).
Proceeds from the event will benefit the community projects of the Junior League of Greenwich including: Positively Me!, BAM! (Boys Achieving More), Done In A Day, and the Greenwich Pool in Byram Park. And some of the lead sponsors for the event included The Gibbons Foundation, Greenwich Braces, Putnam Indian Field School and Whitby School.
