From Decatur Active Living’s Cheryl Burnette…

Join Decatur Active Living on Saturday, March 26 from 10am until 1pm for the annual Touch-a-Truck Event. This fun community event gives children of all ages an opportunity to touch, explore and see their favorite trucks or equipment on wheels.  The City of Decatur and DeKalb County dump trucks, fire trucks, tractors, police cars and motorcycles and many other types of vehicles will be on display.

School Bus Safety! City Schools of Decatur will have a school bus on site and children have the opportunity to learn about school bus safety.

Car Seat Installation Demonstration! Learn how to properly install child safety seats. Decatur Fire and a Decatur High School Senior will be demonstrating the correct installation. Bring your questions and keep your children safe.

Ride Your Bike! We encourage folks to ride their bike to the event to have it registered by the Decatur Police Department. All those who ride their bike to the event will also receive a special bike pin!

Decatur Active Living and Decatur Fire are celebrating National Nutrition Month at this annual event. National Nutrition Month is a campaign that focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. When you come to Touch-A-Truck, join in the effort by bringing any canned or non-perishable food item. All items will be delivered to DEAM, Decatur Emergency Assistance Ministry.

Touch-a-Truck takes place in the Callaway Building Parking lot located at 120 West Trinity Place, Decatur. In case of inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled for Saturday, April 25. For more information, contact Cheryl Burnette 678-553-6541 or [email protected]. Be sure to visit for up to date information on all Active Living programs throughout the year.

  1. Got small children? If so, go to this. Every little boy and girl loves it. And to be honest, many of the big boys and girls, too.

    A warning, though. The sirens get used a LOT, so be prepared with ear protection and ibuprofen.

    1. Yes – and I’ve found it be far more pleasant than the Touch a Truckdriver event. I’m not judging, it’s just a personal preference.
