Touch a truck event

Dixie Electric Touch a Truck provides a unique opportunity for children to explore vehicles of all types - public service, emergency, utility, construction, transportation, delivery and "fun & flashy" trucks - in one place. Personnel will tell about the equipment and allow "hands on" exploration.

TICKETS: Advance tickets are available via Eventbrite. Family 4 Packs of tickets are $15 and are available through Eventbrite prior to the event. Entrance is $5 per person at the event.

LOCATION: Library Street Parking lot across from the LJC Library (beside War Memorial) in downtown Laurel. Free train ride to and from outer parking areas.

AT EVENT: Tickets are $5 per person over 2 years of age, cash only. Family 4 Packs are not available at the gate.

ATM: 401 Central Ave at Rasberry Financial and BancorpSouth.

NO HORN HOURS: 10:00 am to 11:00 am and 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm (for those with sensitive hearing)

FOOD: $1 drinks, $2 hot dogs, $3 hamburgers and $1 chips will be available for purchase at our Main Street concession. Landrum's Country Old Fashioned Ice Cream will also be on site!

Though we love our furry friends, we ask that you do not bring pets to the event in the interest of safety for attendees and the pets as loud noises often upset animals. Thank You!

All proceeds will benefit the Laurel Main Street Facade and Amenities Grant projects. This year's specific projects will be additional over street lighting in downtown and streetscape beautification. Special thanks to the Laurel Junior Auxiliary and Friends of the Library for their important partnership in this event.

The Jones County Sheriff's Department will be participating in Touch A Truck and hope to see you and your family there.

Joe Berlin, Sheriff
