[ARCHIVED] City of Brighton bringing out heavy machinery at fifth annual Touch-A-Truck event for kids

The City of Brighton will be bringing out its heavy machinery for the fifth annual Touch-A-Truck event on Saturday, Aug. 26, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of Brighton City Hall (500 S. 4th Avenue).

Kids of all ages will get the opportunity to go behind the wheel, climb and explore vehicles of all sizes, and meet the people who operate them. Police cars, fire trucks, Flight for Life (landing at 11 a.m.; subject to availability), tractors, snow plows, loaders and much more will be at the event. Kids in attendance will get to help decorate one of the city’s snow plows with paint.

This year’s Touch-A-Truck will also feature Bike Brighton's Bike Rodeo. Children will be guided through a safety course to learn important skills for safe bike riding — please bring your own bicycle. 

There will also be a drawing for giveaways. Limited parking will be available at City Hall. Please be courteous of parking in residential areas — be aware of road restrictions (i.e. don’t block fire hydrants), property access and safety. If you have questions about Touch-A-Truck, email communications@brightonco.gov.
