Kids love big trucks. Many grown-ups do, too.
Their big-truck dreams will come true Aug. 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in Munroe Falls Metro Park's Lake Area, 521 S. River Road, Munroe Falls.
A dozen Summit Metro Parks vehicles - including a dump truck, law enforcement cruiser, backhoe, excavator and more - will be open for kids of all ages to "inspect" and sit in during the park district's inaugural Touch-a-Truck event.
Stow Police, Tallmadge Police and the Munroe Falls Police and Fire departments will display additional vehicles. Air Bear - the helicopter from Akron Children's Hospital - will be there, too.
The park district has invited several food trucks to participate. Visitors can buy something for lunch, but going inside the food trucks is off-limits.
