You’re invited! Come Touch-A-Truck Sept. 9

Touch-A-Truck 2023

Explore trucks and interact with vehicles at the annual Touch-A-Truck event on Saturday, Sept. 9, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Totem Middle School’s Asbery Field, 1605 7th St. The City of Marysville invites families to attend this free event. Horns and sirens will be active from 10 a.m. to noon, with a quiet hour from noon to 1 p.m.

This community-favorite event invites kids to sit in the driver’s seat of Marysville’s largest heavy-duty rigs. Children of all ages have a hands-on chance to honk horns, set off sirens and kick the tires on a variety of big rigs. Vehicles include a dump truck, vactor truck, police vehicles, street sweeper, fire engines, garbage trucks, a heavy expanded mobility tactical truck and many more. 

This year the city has added a new feature: help name our newest big rig! Top name suggestions collected in a contest currently underway* will be displayed for public vote next to the hydro excavator at Touch-A-Truck. Those who then submit the final name chosen will be invited to a future photo event with city leaders.  

“We are excited to partner with so many different community organizations,” said Sam Giffin, community events coordinator. “Several of our local non-profits are attending along with vehicles from throughout Snohomish County.”

Donations gratefully accepted to Marysville Community Food Bank. Marysville Sunrise Rotary will be selling food concessions. Thank you to event sponsors Community Transit, Abbey Van Dam and BECU.

Please leave pets at home. For more information, visit www.marysvillewa.gov/touchatruck or call Parks, Culture and Recreation at 360-363-8400. 

*To enter the contest, pick up a coloring page at the Community Center (1015 State Ave.) or City Hall (501 Delta Ave.) and return it to the same location, or download and print one at https://www.marysvillewa.gov/HydroExcavatorContest, then email to kbryant@marysvillewa.gov. Deadline is Aug. 31.
