The Junior League of Rhode Island will hold its annual “Touch-a-Truck” event, where kids of all ages can climb, explore and discover big rigs from around the state on April 20 at the Garden City Shopping Center in Cranston.
Beginning at 10 a.m., the public is invited to get an up close look at some of the biggest things on wheels. Vehicles from local police and fire departments and a number of local businesses will be available until 2 p.m.
Admission is $5 per child, with children under 2 free. The popular frozen yogurt proprietor Pinkberry will be on hand to sell tasty treats. All proceeds from this popular community event will support the mission of the Junior League of Rhode Island. The rain date is April 27.
