Touch a Truck comes to Gunter

The Gunter Parks Foundation is excited to announce they will be hosting their 5th annual Touch a Truck event this year at Preston Trail Farms in Gunter, Texas on Saturday, September 8th from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Come experience what it is like to climb, touch, sit in, and see first-hand a real concrete truck, garbage truck, tractor, bucket truck, and many more! After climbing on all the big trucks, visit the petting zoo at Preston Trail Farms, feed all of the animals, then hop on the hayride. Food will be available to purchase with cash. Entry is $5 per person and children 12 months and under are free. For safety purposes, we are offering parking at the Celina High School, 3455 North Preston Road, Celina, Texas, 75009. We will have free shuttles running from the school to Preston Trail Farms which is located at 15102 State Highway 289 (Preston Road) in Gunter.

"We have added a few new pieces of equipment this year and are excited to have the helicopters back," said Nancy Nevil, Gunter Parks Foundation President. "The Gunter Parks Foundation is thankful for the enthusiastic response to our fundraiser and looks forward to another successful year.”

After raising over $200,000, the Gunter Parks Foundation and the entire Gunter community came together and built a community playground.
