Touch-A-Truck Returns Sept. 29

Explore different county vehicles including fire trucks and police cars, and help support the Cobb Safety Village.

Children and adults alike are invited to examine and get inside their favorite municipal vehicles at this years' Touch-A-Truck event, held on Sept. 29 at Town Center Mall in Kennesaw.

Big red fire trucks, sleek and stylish police cars and less iconic vehicles such as dump trucks and heavy construction trucks will be on display and open for exploration.
