Touch-A-Truck_NewsFlash

For the fourth year, the City of Brighton will be bringing out its heavy machinery for Touch-A-Truck on Saturday, August 28 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. in the parking lot of Brighton City Hall (500 S. 4th Avenue).


At the annual event, kids of all ages will get the opportunity to go behind the wheel, climb and explore vehicles of all sizes and meet the people who operate them. Police cars, fire trucks, tractors, snow plows, loaders and much more will be at the event. Kids in attendance will get to help decorate one of the city’s snow plows with paint.


This year’s event will also feature a Bike Safety Rodeo and Big Bike Roundup hosted by the Brighton Rotary Club and Bike Brighton. Children between the ages of 4 and 12 years old can participate in the Bike Rodeo, in which volunteers will check and make minor repairs to bikes and adjust helmets to fit. Children will also be guided through a safety course to learn important skills for safe bike riding. In addition, bicycles and trikes (in any condition) will be collected for donation to the Second Chance Bike Shop; bikes will then be repaired and donated to those in need. There will also be a bike giveaway.  


Limited parking will be available at City Hall. Please be courteous of parking in residential areas - be aware of road restrictions (i.e. don’t block fire hydrants) and property access and safety. 


For more information about the Bike Rodeo and Roundup, contact Brighton Rotary President Kathleen Pierz at 248-867-8164.


For more information about Touch-A-Truck, please contact the city’s Special Events division at 303-655-2218.
