BANGOR, Maine — Organizers of the second annual Touch-A-Truck Fair on Saturday, Aug. 11, at the Cole Land Transportation Museum need more trucks. Proceeds from the event will send children with disabilities to Camp CaPella in Dedham this summer.

“We would love to get more truckers to bring their vehicles to put on display at this great Touch-A-Truck Fair,” said Dana Mosher, executive director at Camp CaPella. “Youngsters can come to the Touch-A-Truck Fair and see all kinds of trucks and emergency vehicles up close, maybe climbing in behind the steering wheel in the driver’s seat to see what it might be like to drive these trucks down the road.”

Corporate and business sponsors are being sought to help defray the cost of the event. There is no charge for companies, truck owners and drivers to display their trucks and vehicles.

“We’re also looking for some more volunteers to help with parking and some other tasks,” said Chris Thorne, project manager at the Cole Land Transportation Museum. “This is a great way to help support Camp CaPella and what it brings to our community.”

The event will include police, fire and rescue vehicles, tractor-trailers, construction vehicles, tow trucks, military vehicles, The Kool Bus, food, face painting, a bounce house and much more, including free admission to the museum.
