Edmond Electric Touch-a-Truck still accepting entries
Edmond Electric is accepting entries for its annual Touch-a-Truck event set for June 1 at the University of Central Oklahoma.
Touch-A-Truck is a fundraising event that provides kids of all ages with the opportunity to experience life-size vehicles and interact with community support leaders like police officers, firemen, construction workers and many more.
Families will have the opportunity for a hands-on exploration of many vehicles such as Edmond’s own fire trucks and police cars, an Edmond Electric bucket truck and even a solid waste truck.
Admission for the Touch-A-Truck event is a suggested $2 donation with all proceeds going to The Hope Center of Edmond to benefit local residents in need.
Last year, the event displayed over 50 different vehicles for kids to enjoy and raised $5,000 for The Hope Center of Edmond.
The event is free for companies and organizations that are willing to bring their unique vehicles for display. Due to the interactive style of this event, entries will not be accepted that only have a booth-type setup.
New this year is a quiet hour from 9 to 10 a.m. to accommodate children sensitive to loud noises. During this time, no horns or loud music will be allowed.
This year's event will be in UCO's Parking Lot No. 6, which is north of Second Street at Baumann and Hurd.
If a group or organization would like to participate in the kid-friendly event, sign up information can be found at edmondelectric.com/touchatruck or by calling Jessica Lyle at 216-7729.
Sign-up forms are due May 31.
