The Southfield Parks and Recreation Department will host Touch-a-Truck on Sunday, April 23 from 1–4 p.m. at the Southfield Municipal Campus North Parking Lot, 26000 Evergreen Road.

Kids of all ages will have a fun afternoon getting up close and personal with the vehicles used to get work done throughout the City of Southfield. Vehicles will be staged throughout the north parking lot (near the Parks & Recreation Building) of the Southfield Municipal Campus. The first hour of the event, from 1-2 p.m., will be a Sensory Sensitive Hour with no flashing lights or loud noises and quiet zones away from the action. This free, outdoor event is presented by the Southfield Parks & Recreation Department, Southfield Police Department, Southfield Fire Department and Southfield Department of Public Works.

Visitors can see what it is like to sit in the driver’s seat of these big rigs and talk with the people who operate them. The Southfield Police Department will offer demonstrations of their drones as well as K9 division. The Southfield Fire Department will have a ladder truck, EMS/ambulance, and Smoke House on display as well their Tech Rescue and Hazmat operations. The Department of Public Works will bring out the big hitters including a road grader, bucket truck, and street sweeper.
