Edmond Electric is accepting entries for its annual Touch-a-Truck event, set this year for Saturday, June 4, on the campus of the University of Central Oklahoma.

Touch-A-Truck is a fundraising event that provides kids of all ages the opportunity to experience life-size vehicles and interact with community support leaders like police officers, firemen, construction workers and many more. Edmond’s own fire trucks and police cars, an Edmond Electric bucket truck and even a solid waste truck will be available for hands-on exploration.

Admission for Touch-A-Truck is a suggested $2 donation with all proceeds going to The Hope Center of Edmond to benefit residents in need.

The last event displayed more than 50 different vehicles for kids to enjoy and raised $5,200 for The Hope Center of Edmond. The event will feature a “quiet hour” from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. to accommodate those sensitive to loud noises. During this time, no horns or loud music will be allowed.

Participation in this event is free for companies/organizations willing to bring their unique vehicles for display. Due to the interactive style of this event, entries that only have a booth-type setup will NOT be accepted.

If your group or organization would like to participate in this kid-friendly event, sign-up information can be found at edmondelectric.com/touchatruck or by calling Nicole Koehn at (405) 216-7671.

Sign-up forms are due by May 27, 2022, and a Certificate of Insurance must be provided with the City of Edmond listed as the additional insured.

This event is subject to cancellation due to pandemic concerns but currently is set to occur on schedule.
