Junior Service League of Beaufort hosts unique, interactive experience for children

From staff reports

The Junior Service League of Beaufort (JSLB) is hosting the 6th annual Touch-a-Truck fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 30 at the Beaufort Town Center.

Touch-a-Truck is a family event that offers a unique and interactive experience for children of all ages. Children will have the opportunity to see, touch, and safely explore their favorite vehicles that serve our community.

There will be a designated Quiet Hour from 10 to 11 a.m. for those sensitive to noise. Cost of admission is $5 per person (free for children younger than 18 months).

“We are so excited to return to the Beaufort Town Center for a spooktacular Touch-a-Truck event this year. As JSLB members, we value enrichment in the lives of children and families, which is why it is so important for us to bring this unique event to Beaufort,” JSLB Touch-a-Truck Chairwoman Kelly Troccoli said in a release. “New this year is the designated Quiet Hour from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. for members of our community who may be sensitive to noise and lights. During this hour, we will do our best to eliminate music, sirens, lights, etc., to ensure a comfortable experience for everyone. We are working hard to put on yet another safe, fun-filled event that will help us raise money that goes right back into our community through non-profit grants given out in May.”

The event will feature many different types of equipment, including a fire truck, a patrol car, a SWAT car, stormwater vehicles, a monster truck, construction vehicles, and even a helicopter. The entertainment area, and the event at large will reflect COVID protocols.

To round out the experience, there will be live music and fabulous food, drinks, and libations available for purchase.

In the case of rain, the event will be postponed to Nov. 6. Pets are not be allowed at the event.
