Prattville – The City of Prattville and Prattville Downtown Unlimited present the first annual “Prattville Touch a Truck,” on April 10 from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM along the Creekwalk.

The event is designed for children to “touch and explore” various vehicles from local businesses in order to help satisfy their curiosity. It is free and open to the public.

Trucks and other vehicles on display will be a ladder fire truck, an ambulance, a police swat truck, the big green bus, a garbage truck, a wrecker, a rollback, a motor grader, an excavator, a Pepsi truck, radio station trucks, a dump truck, a television truck, a wastewater hydro washer … and more!

“I am looking forward to this free event,” said Prattville Mayor Jim Byard, Jr. “It is an excellent opportunity for children of all ages to see, touch, and get up close and personal with vehicles that are usually off limits to them.”

For more information, please contact the Special Events Department at (334) 358-0297.
