MARYSVILLE – Hundreds of families turned out for the city’s Touch a Truck event Saturday, despite gray skies and a few drizzles.
“They come no matter what,” city parks director Jim Ballew said. “It’s always packed like this.”
Kids had fun honking horns in vehicles such as fire trucks, police cars, street sweepers, garbage trucks, Community Transit bus, dozers and more. Families waited in line to ride the Sunrise Rotary train for free.
Ballew said he knew that one gentleman came all the way from Des Moines.
“Entire families come to this: grandparents, parents and kids. Some come every year,” he added.
