Thereâ€™s no chance of muddling up what this particular exhibit means.
Kids will get a chance to â€œTouch A Truckâ€ at the fire station as part of the Maple Park Fun Fest on Labor Day weekend.
â€œThis is a chance to get up close to a helicopter or maybe a cannon. Itâ€™s something you donâ€™t get a chance to do every day,â€ said Fire Chief Kevin Peterson of the Maple Park Fire Department.
Scheduled to take place from 2 to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 5, area fest-goers can see what makes a local fire truck or ambulance tick.
Fun Fest planners are also looking to secure a National Guard vehicle and a Lifeline helicopter, used to airlift patients to hospitals.
Peterson said the exhibit will kick off before the Saturday parade.
