Kids explore heavy equipment at Touch-A-Truck

Kids crawled on, climbed up and poked-around in the tractors, semi-trucks, excavators, engines, garbage trucks and more that filled the Norris-Penrose Event Center during the Junior League of Colorado Springs' Touch-A-Truck weekend, on Sunday, March 4, 2018. The event raises money for the Junior League's Fostering Change program to help foster children transition and age out of foster care.
