31 Touch-A-Truck Events to Delight Kids with Tractors, Construction Trucks, Emergency Vehicles, and More

Outdoor Places to Go

Kids can hop on big trucks, honk the horn on cool cars, and pretend to steer fire trucks to save the day at these local Touch-A-Truck events throughout the western suburbs. At some of these family-friendly festivities, first responders who drive emergency response vehicles will be on hand to answer questions and give tours, too. You’ll also find school buses, ambulances, garbage trucks, and so much more. We’ve noted some sensory-friendly times where the sirens and lights will be turned off, too.
