Families got up close and personal with Army vehicles, a Coast Guard boat, a fire engine and more at the fifth annual Touch-a-Truck event held at Ludlowe High School on Sept. 15,  and presented by the Junior Women’s Club of Fairfield with premier sponsor Mercedes Benz of Fairfield, Porsche of Fairfield and Audi of Fairfield.

Under bright blue skies, children also got the chance to get a lift in a bucket truck, while also experiencing other entertainment options, including rides on the Roaming Railroad, music and face painting. Families fueled up with meals from food trucks and treats like popcorn, cotton candy, Italian ice and baked goods.

The event raised money for JWC’s scholarship fund for deserving young women at three Fairfield high schools.

“It was another successful and exciting Touch-a-Truck,” said Erin Fusco, event co-chair. “So many from our community came together to provide an entertaining day for families — from the truck operators who engaged the children as they wandered from vehicle to vehicle to our entertainment and vendors who added provided so many choices for what to do next, to our sponsors who helped make the whole event possible, and of course, the many visitors that came out to the event. We all came together to make a big difference in the lives of young women starting their journey to college.”

This year’s event sponsors included Steve DeMasco’s Shaolin Studios of Fairfield, Anytime Fitness, The Bank of Fairfield, East Coast Irrigation, Nannies as Needed, Chip’s Family Restaurant, Pediatric Healthcare Associates, Splash Car Wash and Garden Catering.
