Touch-A-Truck coming to UCO June 4

Edmond Firefighter Paul Kress tells Carson Confer, 9, of Edmond, about a fire rescue truck during a past Touch-A-Truck event on the University of Central Oklahoma campus.

Edmond Electric is accepting entries for their annual Touch-a-Truck event set for Saturday, June 4.

Touch-A-Truck is a fundraising event that provides kids of all ages with the opportunity to experience life-size vehicles and interact with community support leaders like police officers, firemen, construction workers and many more.

“Families will have the opportunity for a hands-on exploration of many vehicles such as Edmond’s own fire trucks and police cars, an Edmond Electric bucket truck and even a solid waste truck.”

Last year, the event displayed over 50 different vehicles for kids to enjoy.

Admission for the Touch-A-Truck event is a suggested $2 donation with all proceeds going to the Edmond Hope Center to benefit local residents in need.

FOR A GROUP or organization to participate in this kid-friendly event, sign-up packets can be found at or call Jessica Lyle at 216-7729. Sign-up forms are due by May 30.
