Touch-A-Truck Benefiting Austin Children’s Shelter


I’m doing a rare, local giveaway here today, so if you’re not an Austin area reader, feel free to check in with me next time, and have a great weekend!


This giveaway is closed! Congrats to Carol for winning the family 4-pack of tickets!


On Saturday, November 2, 2013, Gorgeous Millie presents their third annual Touch-A-Truck event, benefiting the Austin Children’s Shelter. The event takes place from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Bridgepoint Elementary School (6401 Cedar St). Parking is free at Riverbend Church (4214 N. Capital of Tx Hwy). In 2012 over 1800 people attended the event, and Georgeous Millie was able to hand over a $10,000 check to the Austin Children’s Shelter.

At Touch-A-Truck, kids will be able to see, touch, and climb into over 20 different vehicles: fire truck, police car, ambulance, limousine, and more. How fun would it be to see your kids crawling around these larger than life vehicles and talking to them about what they do? Hopefully this will be the only time my girls ever see the inside of a police car.

Along with the vehicles, kids can bounce around in a bounce house, get their face painted, and snuggle little animals in a petting zoo.

Admission for Touch-A-Truck is $5 per person at the door. Children 12 months and under are free. VIP tickets are available for $20, and include limited access from 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. (great way to b eat the lines!), premium parking spots, and free breakfast.

Now. Thanks to the lovely people at Gorgeous Millie, I have one (1) family 4-pack of general admission tickets to give away to a reader (a $20 value). All you have to do is leave a comment telling me which vehicle you think would be your kids’ (or your!) favorite to check out.

  • One comment/entry per person. Easy peasy.
  • Giveaway closes Wednesday, October 30, 2013 at 11:59 p.m.
  • Open to all US residents (but you’ll probably only apply if you’re in the Austin area…).

For more information or to purchase your own tickets, visit the Touch-A-Truck website or Eventrbrite page. Kids’ t-shirts are also available on the Eventrbrite page.
