Kids of all ages are invited to come check out commercial and industrial vehicles at the City of Rock Springs annual Touch a Truck tomorrow.

ROCK SPRINGS — Grab the kids and cruise on down to the Family Recreation Center tomorrow for the free Touch a Truck event.

The display is a great opportunity for the whole family to get behind the wheel of some commercial and industrial vehicles. It takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The trucks will be on display in the parking lot of the FRC. JJ Syvrud, Civic Center Programs Superintendent, said he and his co-worker, Robyn Rasmussen, got the original idea for the event while attending a state recreation convention.
