4th Annual Touch-A-Truck NRV

The New River Valley Home Builders Association is excited to present the 4th Annual Touch-A-Truck NRV event on Saturday, August 18th from 10am to 3 pm at the New River Valley Mall. We would like to note that there are a couple changes this year. Instead of the Belk parking lot, the event will take place in the Belk parking lot. Also, those with sensitive ears will enjoy our extended horn-free/siren-free time this year. It will run for 2 hours from 10 a.m. to noon.

This FREE family event is a fun way to get children’s imaginations in gear so they can learn about careers that involve some of these big trucks, such as construction, landscaping, and even law enforcement. Our community’s children will get to have a safe and hands-on learning experience by climbing into the driver’s seat, exploring the vehicles, honking horns and asking questions with the people that operate these vehicles on the job.

We are looking for trucks and food vendors to participate in this year’s event. If you have a vehicle that you would like to show off, please contact Melanie Hassan at the New River Valley Home Builder’s Association at melanie@nrvhba.com and check out our “Touch-A-Truck NRV” Facebook page for updates and more information.
