NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Despite the chilly morning, parents and caregivers bundled up their toddlers and preschoolers and brought them over to the parking lot behind Joe Wolfe Field on Wednesday morning for the Family Center's annual Touch a Truck event.
The event allowed children to explore big trucks as well as learn about community helpers such as a police car, fire truck and ambulance. There were also buses, tractors, a flatbed tow truck, construction vehicles, ATVs and more.
North Adams and Clarksburg fire departments had trucks at the event, as did North Adams police and ambulance. The BRTA had two buses at the event; the large bus was a popular stop as the heat was running inside.
The event has been going on for 13 years now and is always held the Wednesday during the April school vacation.
