Touch A Truck.png



Magic City Discovery Center would greatly appreciate your participation in this family friendly event for kids of all ages. Touch-A-Truck is a community wide event that involves both public and private entities, allowing children the opportunity to explore vehicles of all types: public service, agriculture, emergency, construction, utility, transportation, landscaping, excavating, delivery trucks and more.


What does participation involve?  There is no cost to you, but we ask that you staff your "Business Booth" (parking lot space). We also ask that your "TRUCK" or FOOD TRUCK be parked and ready to go by 3:30pm and not moved during the event to ensure the safety of the children. If you have employee vehicles, please park them in the lower lot of the MAYSA prior to 3:30pm for the safety of the children, and we ask that "TRUCKS" not be moved during the event.


Are you willing to participate? Register below by June 25th


Things to consider:

  • 5pm-6pm Quiet Hour - No lights, noises or motions. This time will be for families with children with special needs.

  • This is an event for all ages!

  • You can give away items at your parking spot but cannot charge for admittance to the actual vehicle. Food Trucks may charge for food.

  • Many small hands will be in your "TRUCK"- please plan accordingly.

  • Many children may stand on the seats and touch everything in reach. Please be prepared.

  • This is a family event but no pets please.

  • There will be vendors/food trucks selling food and drinks. No alcoholic beverages allowed.

  • Clearly indicate if you don't want food in your truck and consider putting up a barrier to best manage that by your staff.

  • Consider bringing lawn chairs or seating for your staff.

  • If the weather is inclement some things may be moved inside but this is a Rain or Shine event.


If you have any questions concerning this event, please contact Amy Rietveld at or 701-858-7529.

Magic City Discovery Center greatly appreciates your generosity and support! Thank you in advance for your participation and assistance in making this a great community event!
