Touch a Truck in Clarksville By: Jeanette

We took a short drive north from Louisville this weekend to Touch-A-Truck in Clarksville, IN. The Clarksville Parks and Rec hosted this free event. It was a great experience for our family.


We arrived shortly after it started at 10am. We had a few waits in line to sit in a truck, but no more than 2 were ever in front of us. There was a huge variety of cars and trucks: UPS semi-truck, school bus, fire trucks, dump trucks, tow truck, power parachute, tour bus, police car, golf cart, and armored personnel carrier to name a few. The vehicles were open so children could get up in them, explore, and of course, honk the horn. Many of the operators of the vehicles were nearby and kid friendly. A pancake breakfast and a yard sale were going on simultaneously. This event is definitely worth checking out again next year.

We also had such a great time at this event. They were serving a pancake breakfast and we scored some great deals at the yard sale as well. Our little guy talked about this event for days after.
