Touch-a-Truck and Florida Clown Event This Saturday at Largo Central Park

The annual event features vehicles to interact with, clowns and family friendly activities.

Are you ready to climb aboard a fire truck, check out a helicopter while it’s on the ground or watch a bunch of clowns perform silly tricks?

If so, you’ll want to head to Largo Central Park on Saturday, Feb. 9, for the 18th annual Touch-a-Truck and Florida Clown Day, a family friendly event that’s suitable for kids of all ages.

The free event kicks off at 11 a.m. and will feature dozens of vehicles that visitors can interact with, including fire trucks, dump trucks, motorcycles, buses and 18-wheelers.

In addition, there will be more than 100 clowns from all over the state present, courtesy of the Uptown Clown Alley. They will be entertaining the crowd with balloon animals, face paining and a slew of silly clown tricks. 

This year the event is also home to a Community Business Expo, where you will be able to learn about services, products and programs offered by Largo businesses.

Also there will be food and beverages available, plus train rides on the Largo Central Railroad and a Rocketship Car ride around the grounds.

If you go be sure to visit the Patch tent at the business expo to say hello and get some cool free swag!
