Join Decatur Active Living on Saturday, March 25 from 10am until 1pm for the annual Touch-a-Truck Event. This fun community event gives children of all ages an opportunity to touch, explore and see their favorite trucks or equipment on wheels. The City of Decatur and DeKalb County dump trucks, fire trucks, tractors, police cars and motorcycles and many other types of vehicles will be on display.

Ride the train! This year’s Touch a Truck event will be held in the East Lake MARTA station NORTH lot. We encourage visitors to ride the train to the event and make this a family field trip!

School Bus Safety! City Schools of Decatur will have a school bus on site and children have the opportunity to learn about school bus safety.

Register your bike! We encourage folks to ride their bike to the event to have it registered by the Decatur Police Department. All those who ride their bike to the event will also receive a special bike pin!

Food Drive! March is National Nutrition Month, a campaign that focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. When you come to Touch-A-Truck, join in the effort by bringing any canned or non-perishable food item. All items will be delivered to DEAM, Decatur Emergency Assistance Ministry.

Car Seat Checks! Decatur Fire will be doing car seat checks. Make sure your child is secure!

Touch-a-Truck takes place in the East Lake MARTA station NORTH parking lot on DeKalb Avenue. Parking is limited so consider riding the train, walking or biking to the event. In case of inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled for Saturday, April 15. For more information, contact Cheryl Burnette 678-553-6541 or cheryl.burnette@decaturga.com.
