PORTSMOUTH, R.I. — The Portsmouth Free Public Library will hold its annual Touch-a-Truck, a community event giving youngsters the chance to get up close and personal with all kinds of big and fascinating vehicles. Find out more about the event here.
The event will take place on Saturday, May 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Glen Park.
Giant trucks and equipment volunteered by municipal and commercial organizations will be on display. A quiet time will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. when no horns or sirens will sound for those who like it a little more peaceful or cannot be around loud noises.
The admission charge is $3 per person for the day. In addition to the truck display, there will be various activities for the children.
Proceeds from the event will go toward library purchases.
