Does your kid love the flashing lights of an ambulance, or the sound of a horn honking on a semi? Maybe she dreams about getting behind the wheel of a fire truck, or climbing onto a tractor! The NEW Zoo’s Touch a Truck! event will give kids of all ages (and adults alike!) the chance to live out those dreams when they see, touch, climb into, and learn about a wide variety of large vehicles and how they service our community.
Touch a Truck! is presented by Mad City Windows & Baths, the NEW Zoo, and the Village of Suamico. It will be held on Saturday, August 3rd from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This event is FREE with regular zoo admission.
This hands-on, family-friendly event makes it possible for kids to get up-close and personal with vehicles of many different types and sizes. All vehicles will be supervised by people who work with them directly or are knowledgeable about them, which means event guests can climb right inside and feel free to ask questions. Don’t forget to bring your camera and take advantage of the great photo ops!
In addition to the many vehicles on display around the Zoo, there will also be a free bounce house (weather permitting), and free samples of Red Bull for adults. While you’re here, don’t forget to feed the giraffes or ride the new Dahlin Express train and the carousel! The Giraffe Feeding Experience is open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. and again from 2:15 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The train and carousel are both open, weather permitting, daily from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
