Trucks on Tour 2021
Get up close with your favourite council and emergency services vehicles during the October school holidays.
Following an overwhelming attendance at the 2019 event ‘Touch A Truck’, and with the cancellation of the 2020 event due to COVID-19, the City of Onkaparinga is excited to bring back this FREE community event for children of all ages and the young at heart to enjoy.
There will be a variety of council vehicles on display for children to see up close and explore, meet the drivers and have photos. Every hour there will be selected vehicle demonstrations, showing what they are made of.
Trucks, mowers, diggers and crushers, to name a few, will be on display, along with some of their heroic vehicles from emergency services.
Roving artists and a badge making activity for children will be part of the fun on the day.
A coffee van providing hot and cold drink options as well as light snacks will be onsite, however they encourage people to bring their own food and drinks or purchase from the local food trucks outside of the event zone and enjoy the beautiful play facilities that Wilfred Taylor Reserve has to offer.
Vehicle demonstrations and activities will be offered each hour (repeated) for the 4-hour duration, so to avoid queuing they encourage attendees to consider arriving throughout the event duration of 10am-2pm.
The final hour (1pm-2pm) will be offered as a sensory hour for those families who prefer a quieter experience. This means no horns or other loud noises will be experienced (vehicle demonstrations will continue).
For more information and all enquiries please visit City of Onkaparinga website.
