My son in his toddler years loved trucks! We’d jump in the car, hit the expressway, and for miles I’d hear “Truck, truck, truck!” as he pointed his chubby finger at passing rigs. Nothing was better than I-294 for a fun-filled afternoon. 

Immersing ourselves in trucks went beyond a weekly drive. We reread his favorite truck book (to the point where I had memorized the story), sat through countless TV shows and videos about trucks, mesmerized by the awesome power of these vehicles, and even wore shirts and shorts displaying truck images (he did; I didn’t). So, when I heard about Touch A Truck event on South Marion, my curiosity was piqued.

Were kids still gaga about trucks? 

Hopping on my bike, I pedaled down to South Marion and Mills Park to take a look; Yes, trucks are still in vogue as evidenced by kids and parents everywhere!

My hard hat’s off to Pleasant District for creating and hosting this fun event with more than 200 people in attendance, opting to enjoy a couple of hours on a beautiful Saturday morning exploring trucks, playing in sand, listening to music, sporting painted faces, and interacting with friends and family.
