Free family fun gets engines revving at Touch a Truck Sept. 16

Get your motor running and get to the Castle Rock Touch a Truck event Saturday, Sept. 16, hosted by the Castle Rock Police Department.

These trucks are usually plowing streets, working construction sites and saving lives, but for this event they’ll be at Castle View High School, 5254 N. Meadows Drive, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Kids will get a chance to sit in the driver’s seats and explore police cars, military vehicles, helicopters, race cars and more! Plus, get the opportunity to hear from the operators about how everything works and what role these vehicles play in the community.

Castle Rock Police, Castle Rock Fire and Rescue, Fox 31 Weather Beast, Douglas County’s Bomb and S.W.A.T., Elbert County Sheriff’s Office, Rampart UH1H Helicopter, Colorado State Patrol and the United States Army, will be providing demonstrations and educational opportunities for the entire family.

Plus, don’t miss “Lightning McQueen” and “Tow Mater” from the Pixar movie CARS.

Castle Rock Police Department is committed to providing a more inclusive community. “No Horn” hour from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. is designed for children with special needs and auditory sensitivity issues – no horns, music or sirens!

After 10 a.m., the KYGO Radio Truck will get you dancing. Plus, food and refreshments will be available for purchase. Bring the entire family for a fun day focused on getting a closer look at our public safety vehicles, helicopters and more.
