Dozens of large trucks, excavators, towing vehicles, emergency response vehicles and various types of heavy machinery will be on hand for children and their families to explore during Falls Township’s third annual Touch a Truck event.
Held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 27, at Falls Township Community Park, 9050 Mill Creek Road, Levittown, the event is free, open to the public.
The first hour, from 9 to 10 a.m., is sensory friendly and geared for those with special needs. Representatives from The Center for Autism will be on hand.
The event also features giveaways, bounce houses, face painting, a balloon artist, DJ and food available for purchase from Levittown #1 Fire Department.
Proceeds from the event will benefit The Barkann Family Healing Hearts Foundation, a nonprofit that provides financial aid to families throughout the Delaware Valley who are in need due to recent tragedy or adversity. Michael Barkann, host of NBC Sports Philadelphia, began the foundation in 2013.
Barkann will make a special appearance at the event. He also will choose the raffle ticket winner for the four-pack of lower-level tickets to the Phillies-Nationals game on July 13.
