The City of Sterling Heights is once-again offering a new placemaking opportunity for residents this fall — this time in the form of a free, interactive activity for the whole family dubbed “Touch-A-Truck.” The hands-on fun will take place from 3 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 29 in the Dodge Park parking lot.
Sterling Heights invites children and people of all ages to Touch-a-Truck, a fun event that puts kids and even their parents in the driver seat of the city’s biggest heavy-duty rigs. Participants are able to take photos, climb in the vehicles and learn from the men and women who operate the rigs what they do every day.
Trucks that will be present at the event include a Salt Truck, Front End Loader, a Backhoe Loader and Sewer Truck from Public Works, a Fire Engine and a large Police Rescue Truck. There is no need to register, as it is an open event. Attendees will be asked to sign a waiver form before climbing on or into the trucks.
Touch-A-Truck will take place in conjunction with the final Dodge Park Farmers Market, so attendees can swing by the market on the last night of its incredible inaugural year. The Dodge Park Farmers Market will also host a Halloween Party the same evening, so residents are encouraged to arrive in costume for fun and special vendor treats.
