The North Myrtle Beach 3rd Annual Touch-A-Truck

by the City of North Myrtle Beach Parks and Recreation

The North Myrtle Beach Parks & Recreation Department will host the 3rd Annual Touch-A-Truck on Saturday, April 6, 2019 from 10am-2pm, at the North Myrtle Beach Park & Sport Complex in the Soccer/Lacrosse parking lot. Admission is free.

Touch-A Truck provides a day for children of all ages to get an up close, interactive look at many of the large vehicles and heavy equipment they only see on television or driving down the road. 

Everyone will have the opportunity to explore exhibits like dump trucks, tractors, fire trucks, police cars, race cars and more. This event also does double duty by educating youngsters about various aspects of the vehicles— such as their size and function. 

Exhibitors include the City of North Myrtle Beach Public Safety; Horry County Bookmobile; Freedom Boat ClubHorry County Fire RescueHorry ElectricSantee CooperNorth Strand NissanWonderworksMission Bar-B-Que; and more.

In addition to all the vehicles, this community event also features public safety information and other activities including: face painting; sidewalk chalk competitions; birdhouse construction with Keep North Myrtle Beach Beautiful; spot camera eye screenings offered by the North Myrtle Beach Lion’s Club; and letter-writing to soldiers with the Grand Strand Blue Star Mothers.

The City of North Myrtle Beach is proud to support families who have children with autism, special needs, and sensory sensitivities. There will be a sensory-friendly experience from 1-2 pm, where all sirens and equipment noise will be silenced.

This is a unique opportunity for children to explore vehicles of all types – public service, emergency, utility, construction, transportation, and delivery– all in one place. Everyone is invited to come out to climb, learn, and discover.
