LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Give your children a hands-on experience learning about a variety of trucks at the 13th annual Hands on Trucks event.
Children of all ages can attend to see the mechanics of an aerial fire truck, sit inside a limousine, explore a SWAT truck and more. The event is an annual fundraising effort for Imagination Station, a non-profit Lafayette museum with a focus on science and technology.
Not only does the event allow kids to see and touch a variety of trucks, organizers said it helps children to better understand the world around them. Truck operators will be on site to speak with visitors and explain about their vehicles — what jobs it performs and how it operates.
This marks the 13th year for Hands on Trucks, which will take place on Saturday, Aug. 23 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Imagination Station, located at Fourth and Ferry streets, in Lafayette.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at Imagination Station for $4 or at the gate for $5. Children 2 and under are admitted free of charge.
