Touch-A-Truck event Saturday

LAKE PLACID – The sixth annual Touch-A-Truck event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday at the Lake Placid Show Grounds on Route. 73 in Lake Placid.

Cost for this rain or shine event is $5 for adults and $3 for children with all proceeds going to support the Lake Placid After School Program.

Whether looking out from the cab of a massive dump truck, feeling the power of a bucket loader, or getting behind the wheel of a larger-than-life fire truck, the Lake Placid Touch-A-Truck event offers children of all ages an opportunity to experience the vehicles that get the job done.

In addition to fire trucks, dozens of other vehicles including ambulances, loaders, and garbage trucks, helicopter and buses will be on display. New this year is a strongman/woman competition for pros and average joes.

The family-friendly event includes live music, snacks from our Truck Stop Cafe, face painting, temporary tattoos and much more.
