Touch-a-Truck is a unique, interactive event that allows children, young and old, to see and touch vehicles of all types — including public service, emergency, utility, construction, military, farming, and just plain cool — all in one place!

Guests will be allowed to explore their favorite vehicles in a safe and supervised environment, while meeting the individuals who protect, serve, build, and grow the Virginia Beach community. Located just a few blocks down the Boardwalk from the popular “Poseidon’s Playground” in 17th Street Park, we are excited to offer another free activity for families who visit the 49th Annual Neptune Festival Boardwalk Weekend.
