Touch-A-Truck Family Festival
October 27, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Junior League of Asheville is pleased to announce our Inaugural Touch-A-Truck Family Festival, Saturday, October 27, 2018 at Asheville Outlets. The event will be held in the parking lot behind the food court.
Touch-A-Truck is a community wide event where both kids and kids at heart have the opportunity to see, touch, climb and learn about vehicles of all types, including public service, emergency, utility, construction, garbage, transportation, delivery and even a helicopter – all in one place! Children will be able to touch, climb aboard, sound the horn and meet the people who operate these vehicles. Drivers and operators will be onsite to talk about the vehicle and its operation. Children of all ages are bound to be enthralled with all there is to explore.
Additional activities on site will be a fall market with local vendors featuring arts, crafts and not-for profit organizations; activity tents; food and beverage stations; and several other special attractions help to add to the event’s appeal. Parental supervision is required and cameras are highly recommended to capture the day’s adventures and take home wonderful memories to share.
Admission: $5 in advance and at the door. Children 3 and under are free.
The Junior League of Asheville is organizing Touch-A-Truck Family Festival for the community to enjoy as well as supporting the League’s mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving our community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. We’re part of an international network of 291 Leagues comprised of over 140,000 women, in Canada, Mexico, the U.K. and the U.S., engaged in similar work in their own communities. This provides us with a unique and powerful depth of knowledge and resourcefulness to bring about the changes we strive to accomplish.
