The third annual Touch A Truck in downtown Great Falls (100-600 Blocks of Central Avenue) will be on Saturday, August 26, 2023.
The event allows kids of all ages to get up close with all sorts of big trucks and the people who operate them - fire trucks, farm and construction machinery, police vehicles, and more.
