Trucks on Tour is back!
Everyone’s favourite truck-and-vehicle event, Trucks on Tour, returns free from 10am to 2pm on Friday 6 October at Morphett Vale’s Wilfred Taylor Reserve!
Trucks on Tour is a free community event hosted by the City of Onkaparinga and it’s designed to immerse children and their families in the workings of council's trucks and vehicles while capturing their imagination as they climb into, explore and watch them at work.
The vehicle displays are supported by council’s keen Field Operations crew who share details and showcase how the vehicles work, where they might be seen and how they support the community.
The council also invites emergency services crews, SA Power Networks, and a tow truck to ‘tow trucks’, among others, to engage with the audience—showcasing the large and interesting vehicles required to keep the community, safe, clean and happy.
With horns honking, lights flashing, roving performers and demonstrations throughout the day, it’s a fantastically vibrant event and one that brings imaginations to life, but everyone needs down time every now and again.
So, from 1–2pm, a sensory hour is held allowing families who seek a quieter experience to attend as horns and other loud devices are silenced, and demonstrations conclude. Other activities scattered around the event will continue such as roving performers, food trucks, a sensory refuge and of course, event necessities.
