City of Niagara Falls to host Touch-A-Truck event on Saturday, May 25

In celebration of National Public Works Week, the City of Niagara Falls is hosting a Touch-A-Truck event on Saturday, May 25, from 10 am to 2 pm at the Gale Centre (5152 Thorold Stone Road, Niagara Falls).

The free, fun, family-friendly event gives residents the opportunity to explore a range of vehicles, including a police cruiser, fire truck, plow truck, tractor, and Niagara Peninsula Energy Inc. bucket truck.

The City’s Municipal Works team will be on hand to provide demonstrations and answer questions about the vehicles and equipment that help them perform their duties in our community.

“We’re excited to once again welcome the community to visit with our Municipal Works team and to explore the equipment that is essential to keeping our City running smoothly.”

Erik Nickel, General Manager of Municipal Works

Project SHARE is hosting a charity barbeque at the event, with proceeds benefiting essential support services in our community.

Bring a reusable bottle and stay hydrated! The Niagara Region’s Water Wagon, which promotes safe and clean drinking water, will be at the event. The Niagara Falls Public Library Bookmobile will also be present.
