Few words in the English language can excite a young child (okay, some of us grown-ups, too) like these two: Truck Touch! The spectacular events that bring some of the coolest large vehicles on the road to one place and welcome kids to explore them rank high among many a tyke’s idea of a great time. Whoever came up with the concept deserves some kind of really awesome award.This isn’t the first time I’ve posted about one of these events. They have become a standard on the fundraiser circuit for many organizations, mostly nursery and pre-schools, in the area. That’s where you can find one this weekend — on Saturday, October 9, Suburban Nursery School in Bethesda is hosting a day of big wheelin’ fun. From 10am – 3pm in the school parking lot, kids (and parents!) can check out an excavator, cement truck, school bus, tractor, large crane, bookmobile, motorcycles, and many more exciting vehicles.
Admission is $5/person, $3/kids under 12, children under 2 are free. Lunch and baked good will be available for purchase for refueling after all the pretend driving.
Suburban Nursery School is located at 7210 Hidden Creek Road (the Concord Building), between River Road and MacArthur Boulevard, just off of Wilson Boulevard.
