Kids Can ‘Touch a Truck’ At Keeneland

Child Development Center of the Bluegrass has scheduled its annual, family friendly fundraiser, the Touch-A-Truck event, for Sunday, Aug. 25, 1-5 p.m. at Keeneland, behind the Keene Barn.

The event will raise funds for programs and therapy services for this preschool that helps children with and without special needs achieve their maximum potential.

Touch-a-Truck is a unique and interactive event that allows children to climb on, climb in, see, touch and safely explore their favorite big trucks and heavy machinery, as well as to meet the personnel who protect, serve and build the Lexington community.

Vehicles on display routinely include construction trucks, emergency responders, tractor trailers, utility trucks, as well as a hot-air balloon and helicopter.

The event also features area mascots, special performances, snack bars, face painting, inflatables, games and crafts.

“Touch-A-Truck is a signature event for CDCB and we are thrilled to see it raise funds for such an important cause – children with special needs in our community,” said Bonnie Senft, chairperson of the event.

Admission is $15 per vehicle of up to seven occupants.
