Over the weekend, oOn Saturday, May 14, the sixth annual Touch-A-Truck event was held at Debow Recreational Complex for the community to attend.

Each year, this event brings hundreds of people from the community out to learn about the variety of vehicles, equipment, and what goes on inside each vehicle and what each job entails.

Families were seen throughout the grounds climbing into and honking horns on police cars, agriculture tractors, fire trucks, semi-trucks, utility trucks, sanitation trucks, tanks from the military among several other vehicles.

“We had over 2,000 people attend this year’s Touch-A-Truck day. This event always brings the community out and it’s always a sight to see. Not only are the children excited but adults are as well. Saturday’s weather was absolutely fantastic. There were lots of laughs and lots of smiles this weekend. We plan to continue this event next year with even more trucks to check out,” said Tab Brockman, Hopkinsville Parks and Recreation Superintendent. “An event of this size wouldn’t be possible without our first responders’ participation and the displays from so many of our area businesses and industries. We appreciate Huntamaki stepping in as the industry sponsor of Touch-A-Truck.”

The 2022 Touch-A-Truck also provided free hot dogs courtesy of Hopkinsville Police Department, snow cones and balloons from the Christian County Emergency Communication Center, hot dogs from Second Baptist Church and face painting from Henderson Memorial Baptist Church.
