Metro Park Touch-A-Truck event Aug. 6 in Munroe Falls park

Published: July 31, 2016 12:00 AM

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.

For information, visit summitmetroparks.org or call 330-865-8065.
