Touch a Truck & More

Note:  You must register below to participate.

Mayor Bill Gillespie, Jr., and the City of Prattville are getting fired up for the 5th Annual Mayor’s Bike Ride and 7th Annual Touch-A-Truck event. These events will take place on Saturday, May 21, in conjunction with National Kids to Parks Day.

The Mayor’s Bike Ride will begin at 9:45 a.m. at Upper Kingston Park and will end at Pratt Park where kids can join in the Touch-A-Truck fun. Join Mayor Bill Gillespie for this fun bike ride and remember that everyone riding must wear a helmet. There will be a police escort to ensure the safety of our riders.

Police cars, fire trucks, dump trucks, bucket trucks, racecars, and more will descend on Pratt Park where children of all ages will have a great time climbing on, exploring, and learning about a variety of vehicles and big equipment and talking to the equipment operators. From honking horns to revving engines, spraying hoses and gazing at the firetruck ladders climbing up above the tree tops, there will be something for every boy and girl to enjoy.

National Kids to Parks Day was organized and launched by the National Park Trust and encourages children and their families to get outdoors and visit America’s parks. This event encourages children to lead a more active life style and broaden their appreciation for nature and the outdoors.

Admission is free and the event is open to the public. For more information, contact the Special Events office at 334/595-0854.
