EDMOND — Children, and some adults, were touching the trucks in Edmond over the weekend.

Edmond's Touch-a-Truck is a fundraiser that provides kids with the opportunity to experience life-size vehicles and interact with community support leaders such as police officers, firefighters and construction workers.

Families have the opportunity for hands-on exploration of vehicles such as Edmond's fire trucks and police cars, an Edmond Electric bucket truck and a solid waste truck.

Proceeds benefit the Edmond Hope Center.
