Giveaway: Touch-A-Truck at Camp Mabry


Touch-A-Truck returns to Camp Mabry on May 7, 2016! This annual fundraiser for Austin Children’s Shelter will be bigger and better than ever, with more trucks, more food, and more fun! Read all about it, then enter to win VIP tickets for four!


Last year, I took my son to Touch-A-Truck when his construction vehicle obsession was at an all time high. He was in heaven! He loved getting to climb up into all the big trucks to touch and operate the controls. He also wasn’t shy about drilling the drivers about every little button. “What’s dis doos?” he asked repeatedly. And every one of the drivers/operators was incredibly friendly and patient, answering all of his questions and showing him how the controls worked.


Touch-A-Truck offers more fun than just trucks, too! Food trucks, a petting zoo, bounce houses, games, a barrel-train ride, live music, and more fun for the whole family (even those who might not be wild about trucks).

This event is a huge fundraiser for Austin Children’s Shelter, and there’s no better way to spend a Saturday!
