UTICA, N.Y.-- There was quite an array of vehicles on display today in Downtown Utica, but there more to do than just look.
Handshake City hosted a Touch-A-Truck event where children and families could see, touch and climb aboard their favorite trucks and emergency response vehicles.
The Utica Police and Fire Departments, New York State Police, National Guard and many more were parked across the lawn on Whitesboro Street.
Music, games and activities were also provided...including a puppet show!
"Today we have kid focused vendors, so the library, the tree house reading room, you know different things that offer services for families, but each event has different vendors that are you know specific for what we have going on.", says the founder of Handshake City Katie Reilly.
Handshake City's next event is the "Downtown Getdown", a music and arts festival which is scheduled for September 18th.
