My guys love trucks and cars! They could spend all day talking about them and playing with them and the only thing that trumps that is climbing on them! Even my girls love getting a chance to see big trucks up close. We’ve have the Touch-a-Truck events in Lake County to make your little trucker happy, no matter their size!
