The City of Laurel, Touch-A-Truck


Library Parking Lots

On Saturday, April 8th, Downtown Laurel will come alive with the rumble and roar of hard working behemoths and powerful machines. The squeals of excitement just might overpower the blaring horns and growling motors as Laurel’s littlest get a rare, up-close view of our city’s most unique and awe-inspiring trucks, emergency vehicles, utility machinery and much more!

Touch A Truck, presented by Laurel Main Street and our generous sponsors, will be held Saturday, April 8th, in the parking lots along Carrol Gartin Blvd in Downtown Laurel from 9am to 2pm.

Tickets can be purchased in advance for 4 for $15 at the Laurel-Jones County Library or Lee’s Coffee & Tea. Tickets will be $5 each at the gate. Laurel Main Street t-shirts will be for sale at the event – $20 for adults and $15 for kids.

Have little ones with sensitive hearing? Come out during our special “no horn hour” from 10am to 11am or 1pm-2pm to enjoy the fun without worry!

Food and beverages will be provided by McAlister’s Deli (tea) and Laurel Main Street (Hamburgers, Hot Dogs & Coca Cola Products).

Enjoy activities prepared by many of our exhibitors as well as train rides, art projects provided by the STEM Discoveries & Laurel Jones County Library

There will be a large variety of vehicles this year!  Trucks will be organized into three categories – Tough & Tactical, Fun & Flashy and Heroes & Helpers. Each group will have workers on-hand to educate children about the big jobs their vehicles help them do every day.

Parking will be available along Magnolia St, Beacon St, beside the library and throughout Downtown Laurel.
