Kids big and small can get up close, climb on, and sit inside vehicles of all shapes and sizes when Marion’s first Touch-a-Truck event rolls into town.
From excavators to cranes, ambulances to tippers, and fire trucks to back hoes and streetsweepers, more than 30 vehicles will be on show.
The free school holiday event will be held at Marion Sports and Community Club from 9.00 am to 12 midday on Tuesday 16 April.
People will see vintage police vehicles, including a prison van and motorbikes, tow trucks decorated with cartoon characters, and a custom car and hot rod display.
Visitors can sit inside a modern SAPOL patrol car and sprinter van and meet a member of the K9 drug sniffer team and their dog.
Free activities for kids include bouncy castles, a dig for dinosaur bones game, and a Lego and Duplo play area.
Barbecue lunches will be available for purchase. There will be two coffee vans, and the sports club will sell meals and snacks.
Car parking is available on site, and street parking on Norfolk Road.
