Richland Academy's "Touch a Truck" Day provided kids with fun activities to go along with seeing the kinds of vehicles that city employees use every day. Vehicles that were shown off included garbage trucks, fire trucks, bulldozers, SWAT vans, and more as kids explored and learned about the vehicles.

"I think the trucks kind of bring in a different crowd," said Megan Williams, Richland Academy registrar and marketing director. Many of Richland Academy's enrolled students are girls, but the "touch a truck" event helps bring in a bigger percentage of boys to see their programs as well.

On top of seeing all the different equipment, other activities were planned such as "Fancy Feet", which let kids kick off their socks and paint with their feet, and another activity where they could play a piano while painting it.

"This is a good way for us to reach out to the community and provide a family-friendly activity for people to get involved in," said Williams.

The event was successful, and both children and parents had fun.
