Touch A Truck returns to Marysville

The City of Marysville invites you to Touch A Truck on Saturday. Forget making breakfast because Sunrise Rotary will have food for sale. Come have some family fun on a beautiful, finally Spring Saturday morning, May 21st, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at Totem Middle School’s Asbery Field. It’s located at 1605 7th Street NE in Marysville. 

 This amazing event allows kids of all ages to sit in the driver’s seat of Marysville’s biggest heavy-duty rigs and have a firsthand chance to honk horns, set off sirens, and kick the tires on a variety of big rigs. Vehicles include a dump truck, vactor truck, police vehicles, street sweeper, fire engines, garbage trucks, a heavy expanded mobility tactical truck, and many more! 

These big vehicles come to our rescue and build our communities. They are the fascination of kids of all ages who dream of becoming a firefighter, police officer, builder of large projects, or just handling one of these huge rigs in their future. 

The event is free to attend. Horns and sirens will be from 10:00 am to noon, with a quiet hour from noon to 1:00 pm. 

 “We are excited to resume this fun family community event,” said Kristen Rasmussen, recreation supervisor. “Several of the vehicles are returning from previous years, and there are several new organizations attending such as the Snohomish County Search and Rescue who will bring their Kids Copter.” 

The Marysville Community Food Bank will be accepting donations at their booth, so bring some non-perishables to help your neighbor if you can. Please leave pets at home, the noise can upset them.
