Touch-a-Truck event offers a hands-on look at vehicles during Orange County Market Place


Children of all ages got a chance to get a hands-on look at a collection of emergency response vehicles, construction trucks and vintage cars during Saturday’s inaugural Touch-a-Truck event at the Orange County Market Place in Costa Mesa.

Attendees were able to interact with drivers, explore the various vehicles and honk some of the horns. Touch-a-Truck’s three-hour run also included a “no honking” period for families who wanted to experience the event without loud distractions.

There were opportunities to win prizes.

The Orange County Market Place takes place weekends at the OC Fair & Event Center, 88 Fair Drive. For more information, visit
