The New River Valley Home Builders Association presents the sixth annual Touch-A-Truck NRV event Saturday, Aug. 14, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Uptown Christiansburg, 782 New River Road, in the back parking lot.
For those with sensitive ears, the event will be horn and siren-free from 10 a.m. to noon
Children will get to have a safe and hands-on learning experience by climbing into the driver’s seat and exploring vehicles such as fire trucks, police vehicles, dump trucks, and construction vehicles.
The event will include business and non-profit booths with activities to keep the kids busy, local food trucks, and a raffle for a custom-built playhouse that will be built right on site.
This family event is open to everyone.
Touch-a-Truck NRV is a family event open to all. Tickets are $2 each or $5 per family ticket (valid for up to four attendees.) Children 2 and under are free. Net proceeds from event ticket sales go towards local trades education programs and the NRV Home Builders Care Fund, which helps to fund scholarships for future construction and trade students, community charitable contributions, and future workforce development initiatives.
