Touch A Truck
Neptune’s 9th Annual Touch a Truck Fun for All If you were anywhere near Heck Avenue and Neptune Boulevard on Wednesday evening, you couldn’t help but stop by to check out all the commotion! There was a front end loader, a police car, ambulances, fire trucks, a gator, emergency vehicles, pumper trucks, a street sweeper, rescue trucks, a recycling truck, and a school bus. Sounds like an interesting traffic jam; only this packed parking lot was planned! Neptune’s ninth annual Touch A Truck, held on Wednesday, July 13, at the Neptune Board of Education Office parking lot featured real sirens, real steering wheels, about 20 vehicles, and larger than life excitement. Children and adults could sound the siren on a fire truck, try on emergency gear, board a school bus, sit in the driver’s seat of an ambulance, and even climb a rock wall. The pumper truck sprayed water while the young and young at heart cooled off in the mist. The climbing wall had non-stop action and the younger crowd enjoyed temporary tattoos.
