Touch-a-Truck is 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 30, at Hatbox Field. The entry fee is $2 per person, and this fundraiser supports Muskogee Public Library’s Youth Services Department.
Touch-a-Truck is a fun day for anyone who loves big machines. The event has a variety of vehicles, such as fire, police, and ambulance, trash truck, Channel 6 storm trackers, race cars, construction equipment, a helicopter, and classic cars. The event begins with a quiet hour from 9 to 10 a.m. before children can start honking the horns of trucks from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Four State Natural History Museum will have its dinosaur exhibit, and Muskogee High School’s Robotics Team will be doing demonstrations. Zomac School of Music will have its spring recital at the event, and Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance donated kite kits for the children who attend. There will also be games for kids to play, and the library will be distributing books.
This is the 10th year that the Muskogee Public Library, a branch of the Eastern Oklahoma Library System, and the City of Muskogee have partnered to present Touch-a-Truck. The event had to be canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions.
