For kids interested in police cruisers, fire trucks, and all things automotive, an event on Saturday, Aug. 13 will allow them to safely explore their favorite vehicles.

Touch A Truck will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Wheeling Ohio County Airport.

The event is to raise funds for Holy Family Childcare and Development Center.

Admission is free, and T-shirts and concessions will be on sale.

Along with getting up close-up looks at police cruisers and fire trucks, children can meet the law enforcement officers and first responders who use those vehicles.

They’ll also have an Army helicopter, an excavator, a tow truck, a tractor-trailer, and more vehicles on hand.
Community businesses are encouraged to bring their vehicles.
