AUBURN — The seventh annual Touch-a-Truck event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at Central Maine Community College.

This free communitywide event will be the biggest Touch-a-Truck ever, according to event organizers. Last year, almost two thousand people attended the event. Attendees have an opportunity to see, touch, interact with and learn about dozens of vehicles, such as firetrucks, tractor-trailers, police cars, TV news satellite trucks, ambulances and construction vehicles. There will be a children’s book swap and several children’s activity tables.

Touch-a-Truck will be held rain or shine. Adult supervision is required and cameras are highly recommended.
