2019 Indianapolis Touch a Truck Guide

The ever so popular Touch A Truck events are back in Indy and better than ever this year! How often can kids climb into a fire truck, a bulldozer or a dump truck just for fun? Towns throughout metro Indy have stepped up to host.

Keep in mind that due to noise (like honking horns!) these events can be overwhelming for young children or those with special sensory needs – use your best judgment if attending is right for you.


So for your truck or ‘everything with wheels’ enthusiast, here’s a guide to all the 2019 Indianapolis Touch A Truck events*
