The 15th Annual Touch A Truck event rolls into Wills Park on Saturday, August 23, 2014. Sponsored by the Alpharetta Recreation and Parks Department, the event attracts more than 7,500 visitors each year with activities, such as animal balloons, moonwalks and face painting. But the real attraction are the dozens of unique vehicles on display for children to see, touch and explore! Vehicles include fire engines, police emergency vehicles, heavy-duty construction equipment, military vehicles, buses, entertainment vehicles, motorcycles and more. 

Touch A Truck will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lots near the City Pool and Wacky World Playground. Event parking is free but limited. Carpooling with other families is encouraged. In case of inclement weather on event day, call 678-297-6133 for an update on plans.

    10/11/2014 - 10/11/2014

    See Widespread Panic on two nights at The Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Alpharetta.

    Everybody loves surprises, that feeling of not knowing what might be around the next corner, and that's exactly the vibe that Widespread Panic gives off every time they unleash a new album. Sometimes that means taking listeners on a nice, smooth ride, and sometimes it means making 'em hold on tight, but either way, it means the trip is gonna be worth it.
