New! Touch a Truck
FREE! Rain or Shine at the JCC
1 - 5 pm
1-2 pm - "Hold the Horn" hour designed for children with special needs
Offsite parking and shuttle service will be available at the Union County Vocational Technical School campus at 1776 Raritan Road, Scotch Plains
The event provides a unique opportunity for children to explore vehicles of all types including public service, emergency, utility, construction, landscaping, transportation, delivery and just have FUN – all in one place! Children will be allowed to touch their favorite vehicles, get behind the wheel, climb, explore and learn! Our very own Camp Yachad will be providing even more fun with bouncing and games on our campsite. Food trucks and music will also be part of the day’s entertainment. The event will be free and open to the community and will run rain or shine.
An important aspect of the event will be the “Hold the Horn” hour from 1 – 2pm designed for children with special needs and those with auditory sensitivity issues - no horns, music or sirens! The JCC has made a commitment to create a more inclusive community with opportunities for all members and their families to participate in all that we have to offer.
This free community event will support the JCC’s mission to provide social, recreational, educational and cultural programs and humanitarian services for individuals and families through all phases of life and sponsorship dollars generated from this event will be used to support programs benefitting children in the areas of special needs and financial assistance.
