The Scotts Valley Educational Foundation is hosting its second Touch-A-Truck event in Scotts Valley on April 28, 2019. Our first event in 2017 was a huge hit attracting over 2,000 visitors with over 50 vehicles on display. The big surprise was CALSTAR flying in their medical helicopter and touching down on the old Skypark runway.
For those of you new to Touch-A-Truck, it is a family fun event where everyone gets to explore big trucks, emergency, construction, transportation, electric, and other one-of-a-kind vehicles. The basic premise is exactly what it sounds like – get a bunch of cool, giant trucks together in a large field setting and let boys and girls of all ages explore them and sit in the driver’s seat (and honk the horn!). This is set in a in a safe and friendly park environment full of family activities for all ages. These events have become a big draw throughout California, attracting 1000’s of families, and we are the first to host one in Santa Cruz County.
For 2019, we are planning to have over 50 vehicles. The vehicles will be parked on the old airport field adjacent to Sky Park with the event running from 10:30 am – 3 pm. In addition, there will be a food and drink pavilion and Kids Zone.
