The Home Building Association of Central Virginia brought Touch a Truck to the area in 2013 and has raised more than $100,000 for area children’s charities through the 2019 event. Touch a Truck is a unique and interactive event that allows children to see, touch, and safely explore their favorite big trucks and heavy machinery, as well as to meet the personnel who protect, serve, and build the greater Lynchburg community.
Touch-A-Truck offers children a hands-on opportunity to see, touch and safely explore large trucks and machines. The more than 95 vehicles which children can get into including construction trucks and tractors, police, fire, and rescue emergency response vehicles and aircraft, tractor-trailers, cranes, lift trucks, utility and specialty trucks. They can even ride in a car-crushing monster truck. The event also features monster truck shows, skydivers, food trucks, face painting and bounce castles. Net proceeds from this event support the HBACV community outreach for Local Children’s Charities. The annual event draws more than 5,000 attendees. Plans are now underway for next year’s Touch A Truck. It is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020
