ROANOKE, Va. -

On Saturday July 27th, kids of all ages will once again climb, touch and explore an expanse of cool and unique vehicles at the fourth annual Touch-a-Truck event.

The goal this year is to present more than 200 vehicles, making this the largest event of this type in the United States.

From 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at Roanoke County's Green Hill Park, this FREE community event will allow kids and adults to sit inside, touch and learn all about vehicles they usually don't have the opportunity to be up close and personal with.

Around 10,000 spectators came out last year to the 4th annual event.

Vehicle drivers and operators will be on hand to educate the public about their vehicles and answer any questions.

Favorite activities from past events will return this year, including Firemen's Foam, petting zoo, food vendors, and a magician along with other special attractions.

Event vehicles vary from small Bobcats to large Monster Trucks.

There are also airplanes, helicopters and boats on display.
