We ventured to the Touch-A-Truck event today in Woburn at West Cummings Park.  The event itself was very cool and hundreds of young kids were delighted by the variety of trucks parked around the lot.  We saw everything from ice choppers, to a helicopter, school bus, emergency vehicles, and construction vehicles.  The kids were able to line up to sit in the driver's seats, explore the trucks, and hand everything at their fingertips.  Parking was ample, as most Cummings Park businesses operate Monday through Friday.  The only negative aspect we found to the event was the ability of the children to honk the horns.  Of course at any given moment at least five horns were blaring in one area, and some children found that they could lay on the horn.  It sounded like downtown rush hour in NYC.  Not many parents objected to the prolonged horn beeping either, seemingly thinking it adorable when their seven year old held down the horn for up to a minute, feet away from sleeping babies and wailing infants.  Overall it was a great family friendly event.  It was free, lines were only ten deep at the worst, kids had free reign, and traffic was minimal.  We'll be hitting it again next year, possibly with ear plugs.
