CLARKSVILLE, Ind. (WAVE) - A big crowd tonight at Gateway Park in Clarksville for the annual “Touch a Truck” festival.

This year, kids could explore more than 30 vehicles. Everything from fire trucks to buses to police cruisers and even construction equipment and a cement truck were there.

However, event goers don’t just get to touch them, they can sit in the driver’s seat.

The free event continues to draw a bigger crowd each year.

“She likes the shininess and the lights and the sirens. A lot of kids cover their ears but she don’t,” Tyler Apple, a father, said about his daughter.

In addition to the trucks, there were inflatables and other activities for the little ones.
