Ridgewood Touch - A - Truck 2013

Posted: Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Imagine taking a seat behind the wheel of a real police cruiser ready to roll. Climbing aboard a shiny fire truck as you prepare to battle a blaze. Exploring up-close a fleet of the other emergency and public works vehicles you’ve only seen at a distance on the streets of Ridgewood.
Treat your kids to a day of hands-on adventure, featuring opportunities to climb on board the vehicles that touch their lives, when “Touch-a-Truck” rolls into downtown Ridgewood’s Memorial Park at Van Neste Square on Thursday, May 16 (Rain date: Friday, May 17) .
Ridgewood emergency and public works vehicles will be ready for action along the Oak Street side of the park from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. as the local heroes who serve the Village also will be on hand to share their favorite tales about the exciting work they perform every day.

As an added bonus, they’ll be a Safetytown Kiddie-Car Driving Track hosted by the Ridgewood Police Department and Little Ivy Learning Center. . . and a special Truck Storytime hosted by the Ridgewood Public Library among the planned interactive activities throughout the park area for children of all ages.
Don’t miss this great opportunity to Experience Ridgewood for your entire family, as Touch-a-Truck kicks off the Ridgewood Chamber of Commerce’s three-day Spring Sidewalk Sale Days. Mark your calendar today. You’ll also want to remember to bring your camera for those memory-book photos of your child in action!
Touch-a-Truck is a free event coordinated by Ridgewood’s Little Ivy Learning Center and co-sponsored by the Ridgewood Chamber of Commerce and the Village of Ridgewood as part of their ongoing commitment to serve our community’s children and their families. We look forward to meeting your family.
