Touch a Truck Celebrates 10 Years at Green Hill Park, July 28


We did it!! Roanoke County Parks, Recreation and Tourism is hosting Touch A Truck for its 10th year! In the past nine years we have brought 1,489 vehicles to Green Hill Park as well as delightful memories to over 71,000 visitors. If you have never been a guest or participant, you must come out to play and enjoy this unique experience and so much more! Our tenth annual Touch-a-Truck event is on Saturday July 28th, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Roanoke County’s Green Hill Park. Come and see first-hand what you might have missed for the last 9 years! Kids of all ages can climb, touch, and explore many unique vehicles that are not always accessible to the public. This FREE event is open for kids and adults so they can sit in, touch, and learn about vehicles they usually don’t have the opportunity to see up close.

Touch-a-Truck is a fabulous event, which enables companies, organizations and individuals to interact with the community while letting children see, touch and learn about their vehicles. Vehicles vary from small bobcats to large monster trucks. There will also be all-terrain vehicles and boats, bucket trucks, SWAT vehicles & so much more for the public to explore. If you want to be an active part of this event, sign up your truck, plane, or boat for the event by contacting Roanoke County Parks, Recreation and Tourism Special Events at 540.777.6326 or email Help us make this 10th year the best one yet!

Vehicle drivers and operators will be on hand to educate the public and answer any questions about their vehicles. Favorite activities from past events will return this year, including Firemen’s Foam, a petting zoo, hay rides, food vendors, and a magician along with other special attractions! This year’s event will also include a five car barrel train and a rock climbing wall! Parental supervision and participation is essential and cameras are highly recommended.

Roanoke County’s Touch-a-Truck event is one of the largest of its kind in the Southeast.
