We at the JCC are proud to present the most anticipated children's event of 2024: Touch-a-Truck! 


Touch-A-Truck at the JCC attracts hundreds of children and families for an interactive, hands-on-event that allows children to climb on, explore and discover their favorite trucks and vehicles, including fire engines, police cars and construction trucks. This special event includes over 20 different vehicles, food, arts & crafts, bounce house and DJ fun for everyone provided by Liverpool Productions! It's a childhood dream come to life, including activities that will keep the whole family entertained!


This one of a kind event will be held rain or shine.


Join us from 10:30 - 11:00 AM for a "Hold the Horn" Quiet Time for children with special needs and those with auditory sensitivity issues - no horns, music or sirens during that time.
