Fest-goers can ‘Touch A Truck’

By on September 3, 2009

There’s no chance of muddling up what this particular exhibit means.

Kids will get a chance to “Touch A Truck” at the fire station as part of the Maple Park Fun Fest on Labor Day weekend.

“This is a chance to get up close to a helicopter or maybe a cannon. It’s something you don’t get a chance to do every day,” 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.
