JLNO’s 8th Annual Touch-a-Truck

Want to do good for the community AND give your kiddos a thrill? Check out the 8th annual Touch-a-Truck event on November 2nd! 

The 8th annual Touch a Truck will provide families the opportunity to interact with the wide variety of businesses and vehicles that protect, serve, and build South Louisiana.

Touch a Truck helps children connect these vehicles to possible careers in construction, manufacturing, emergency response, and many others.

Join the Junior League of New Orleans (JLNO) Saturday, November 2, 2019 for a unique experience that gives children and their families an up-close look at their favorite “big-trucks” and the opportunity to meet the people that protect, serve, and build Metropolitan New Orleans.

Displays include construction equipment, emergency responder vehicles, tractors, utility trucks, and much more! The event starts at 10 am and ends at 4 pm at the Pontchartrain Center, 4545 Williams Blvd, Kenner, LA 70065.

A “Quiet Time” will be offered on Saturday from 1 pm to 3 pm. The vehicles will not be permitted to run their sirens, lights, or horns during that period. If your child would prefer this environment to explore the event, plan to arrive during this time.

Nola Family will be on hand with our Baby Base Camp – our adorable retro camper equipped for you to feed, change, and chill with your baby or toddler. We offer a changing table where you can feel safe and secure with changing your child’s diaper, a quiet place for mom to nurse her baby or to pump, and a relaxing place to take a break from all of the big truck fun!
