SOUTHFIELD, MICH (WXYZ) – The Southfield Parks & Recreation Department will host a free Touch-a-Truck at the Southfield Municipal Campus North Parking Lot, 26000 Evergreen Road, on Sunday, April 21 from 1-4 p.m.

Kids of all ages will enjoy getting up close and personal with the vehicles used to get work done in the city of Southfield. This includes semi-trucks, fire trucks, demolition vehicles, police cruisers, and snow plows. The vehicles will be located in the north parking lot near the Parks & Recreation Building of the Southfield Municipal campus.

The first hour of the event will be a Sensory Sensitive Hour with no flashing lights or loud noises and quiet areas away from the action. Visitors can see what it’s like to sit behind the wheel of these big rigs and talk to the people who operate them. The Southfield Police Department will be offering demonstrations of their drones, as well as their K9 division. Refreshments are available for purchase at The Mean Weenie and Egg Roll Diva.
