HONK HONK! HOLLISTON’S ANNUAL TOUCH-A-TRUCK IS BACK --- June 10th

by Angela Page
June 2, 2018

After the honking success of the 2017 event, which drew more than 1100 people and raised several thousand dollars for the community, the Holliston Newcomers Club (HNC) Touch-A-Truck will return on June 10, 2018. Local companies will donate trucks and equipment of all sizes for children to explore. With food trucks, vendors, face painting, and other activities the event promises to engage the whole family. Kids can climb aboard their favorite trucks, honk the horns, and talk to the drivers.

The 2018 Touch-A-Truck will kick off at 9:30 am and runs until 1:00 pm on Sunday, June 10, 2018 at the Sam Placentino Elementary School. The Placentino School is located at 235 Woodland Street (off of Route 16) in Holliston, MA.
 

The event will be horn-free for the first hour (9:30 am – 10:30 am), ideal for younger children and children with special needs. Local businesses including Simkins Tree Service, Holliston Bus, the Holliston Fire and Police Departments, and many others will generously donate their trucks and time for this event.

Food trucks and vendors will be on-site throughout the day, including the the Dogfather, the Cod Squad, and TC Scoops. A variety of additional vendors will offer a range of products and services for the whole family. Visitors will also have a chance to take a ride on the Roaming Railroad for an additional fee.

The cost of the event is $5.00 per person over the age of 1 or the whole family may attend for a flat rate of $20.00. Tickets will soon be available online at http://www.hollistonnewcomers.org. You can stay up to date with ticketing and other announcements by RSVPing to the facebook event, follow @HollistonTaT2018 for more details. Profits from the event will fund the HNC’s annual community grant program. The event is sponsored in part by Harelick Dental, Boudreau's Automotive, and others.
