Touch a Truck

10 am to 2 pm

Zephyr Field Parking Lot

6000 Airline Drive in Metairie

Event Info:

After a successful first year, the Junior League of New Orleans (JLNO) is once again presenting Touch a Truck, a unique, one-day experience that gives families an up-close look at their favorite “big trucks” and the opportunity to meet the people that protect, serve, and build Metropolitan New Orleans. Join us on Saturday, March 15, 2014 from 10 am to 2 pm at Zephyr Field Parking Lot in Metairie.

Touch a Truck displays may include construction trucks, emergency responder vehicles, tractors, and utility trucks. The special chance to touch a variety of vehicles, sit in the driver’s seat of a bulldozer, or climb aboard a fire engine creates lasting memories for children and their families.

Proceeds from Touch a Truck directly benefit JLNO’s nine community projects that serve the at-risk population of Metropolitan New Orleans through charter school support, nutritional programming, youth development, and activities for the elderly.
