3rd Annual Touch-A-Truck @ the Library

April 17, 2018 

Saturday, April 28th will mark the third year of the amazing Touch-a-Truck event at the Woodland Public Library. Touch-a-Truck will be held from 11 am to 1 pm in the parking lot of the library at 250 First Street in Woodland, with vehicles loading in during the hour before. We will have many favorites from years past as well as new additions like a sleeper cab with trailer from Tony’s Fine Foods, a hearse from Kraft Brothers, and a model of a Star Wars TIE fighter that was built by Gerlinger Steel and Supply. Families will be able to get up close to everything, and even go on or in most of the vehicles!

This event is free to the public. The library’s main parking lot, along with North and First Street next to the library, will be closed for the event, but parking will be available on the west side of College Street and in the lots by the Rose Garden. We hope to see you there!
