trucks n such

This didn’t make it into the weekend events post because I just saw the sign when I was heading to playgroup yesterday.

Goochland Baptist Church will be holding its second annual “Trucks ‘n Such” event this Saturday, April 28, from 10am-2pm.

We have all sorts of trucks, tractors, antiques, and more for the children and their families to explore, learn about, touch, and even climb into some of the vehicles. Many vehicles will be doing demonstrations. You will see rescue services, dump trucks, tractor trailers, antique cars, tractors, a bucket truck, an Ice cream truck, and much, much more. This event will be fun for the entire family. Everything is FREE (including lunch). Come enjoy the fun!

If your family has enjoyed attending Touch A Truck in the past, this is similar, except on a smaller scale (and free!).

We actually made it to the event last year – there were about half-a-dozen big trucks and some tractors, etc. No crowds, perhaps because it was a chilly day. It took him a little while to warm up to the idea, but eventually my son had a blast checking out and climbing on the vehicles!


(The fire truck toy was something was had just picked up at the Mustard Seed Consignment Sale!)
