Trucks On Display At Eisenhower Park

Long Island families will have the rare opportunity to explore, sit in and take photos with dozens of unique trucks and vehicles that are typically off-limits at the free “Touch-A-Truck” event on Saturday, April 29 in Eisenhower Park.

Families will have the opportunity to get up-close to unique and one-of-a-kind vehicles and big trucks for kids to sit in, climb on, and take photos with vehicles such as big rigs, fire trucks, police and emergency rescue trucks, military vehicles and construction equipment. There will be activities, food and costumed characters for families to enjoy, along with a special appearance by Ronald McDonald.

While admission is free, attendees are encouraged to bring donations to help “Stuff-A-Truck” for the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, who provide comfort to families experiencing the pain of having a sick child in local hospital facilities.
