The Holliston Newcomers Club (HNC) Touch-A-Truck event will return on June 10, 2017. Local companies will donate trucks and equipment of all sizes for children to explore. With food trucks, vendors, face painting, and other activities the event promises to engage the whole family. Kids can climb aboard their favorite trucks, honk the horns, and talk to the drivers.

The 2017 Touch-A-Truck will kick off at 9:30 am and runs until 1:00 pm on Saturday, June 10, 2017 at the Sam Placentino Elementary School. The Placentino School is located at 235 Woodland Street (off of Route 16) in Holliston, MA. The rain date is set for Sunday, June 11, 2017 at the same time and location.

The event will be horn-free for the first hour (9:30 am – 10:30 am), ideal for younger children and children with special needs. Food trucks and vendors will be on-site throughout the day, including the Captain Marden’s Cod Squad, Travelin’ Bones, and TC Scoops. A variety of additional vendors will offer a range of products and services for the whole family. Visitors will also have a chance to take a ride on the Roaming Railroad for an additional fee.

The cost of the event is $5.00 per person or the whole family may attend for a flat rate of $20.00. Get your tickets online at and beat the lines on the day of the event. Free admission will be granted to children under the age of one. Profits from the event will fund the HNC’s annual grant awards and sponsored in part by Soul Spirit Studio and the Holliston School for the Performing Arts.
