Temperatures creeping into the low 90s didn’t keep away spectators at the Auburn Valley Y’s Touch a Truck and Car Show in Auburn last Saturday.
A handful of trucks and a couple dozen cars turned out, with the Valley Regional Fire Authority, the Valley SWAT unit and Auburn Police Department volunteers on hand to guide children as they explored the trucks on display.
Meanwhile, a collection of muscle cars and hot rods occupied the fields adjacent to the Y, with blues, rock ‘n’ roll and jazz music on the speakers and hot dogs on the barbecue.
“Touch a Truck is designed for children to get up close and personal with heavy machinery. This is a great opportunity for the whole family to come out together and enjoy food and festivities,” said Shanna Crane, Auburn Valley Y Family Programs and Youth Sports director.
“The Auburn Valley Y is a pinnacle for the community and plan to continue to provide great activities to engage families, not only in Auburn but South King County as a whole,” added Kela Hall, regional director of marketing and communications for the Y.
