4th Annual Event Allows Children to Climb in Municipal & Maintenance Vehicles

Fire trucks and police cars and ambulances, oh my!  It’s time once again for Old Falls Street, USA’s annual “Touch-a-Truck” event, on Saturday, Aug. 10, from 2 to 5 p.m. The afternoon allows children and their families to climb into a variety of municipal and maintenance vehicles to see how they operate.  The event will be held on the Middle Block of Old Falls Street, USA, in Downtown Niagara Falls, NY, and is free and open to the public.

“Old Falls Street, USA is happy to host this family-friendly event for the fourth year in a row,” said Global Spectrum’s Ryan Coate, General Manager of Old Falls Street, USA, and the Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls.  “Touch-a-Truck is a concept that is held in many major municipalities throughout the country in order to allow children to interact with not only the vehicles themselves, but the first-responders and street technicians that operate these larger-than-life trucks on a daily basis.”

Special thanks is given to event sponsor, KeyBank on Pine Avenue, in Niagara Falls, which will allow for the transport of some of the vehicles.  Guests will enjoy interacting with trucks from Niagara Falls Fire Department and the City of Niagara Falls, among others.  Also featured will be a giant inflatable mobile activity center and other family-friendly activities.

The day also includes a visit by Old Falls Street’s mascot, Walter C. Falls, food and beverage vending, Ride Niagara bicycle rentals and Backyard Board Games, which allow guests to play giant versions of popular family board games.
