Zoo Knoxville Holds Touch A Truck Event Aug. 25, 2018

Posted: 08/23/2018
Zoo Touch A Truck EventThis Saturday, zoo-goers can get hands-on with big trucks, emergency vehicles and special equipment that rival the animals for size and speed.  Touch A Truck, presented by Stowers Machinery Corporation, will be held on Saturday, August 25, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.  The first 500 children age 12 and under through the gate will receive a free child’s-sized construction hat.

Visitors can get up close to a variety of heavy duty construction equipment from Stowers Machinery Corporation and the Waste Connections U.T. “Tailgating Truck”.  Climb aboard a fire truck from the City of Knoxville Fire Department, a Rural/Metro of Tennessee ambulance and meet the personnel who make Knoxville a safe place to live. Guests can also enjoy the view from way up in the driver’s seat of a City of Knoxville tractor and mini-excavator.  A unique addition is the Safe N’ Sound Creative Technologies M35a2 Military Deuce.
 
Touch A Truck activities are included with general zoo admission.  For more information, please visit the zoo’s Web site at zooknoxville.org, the zoo’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/zooknoxville or call the zoo at (865) 637-5331.
