Open House and Touch a Truck in the City of Tonawanda

Open House and Touch a Truck in the City of Tonawanda Sadly the 2023 Open House was cancelled by the Mayor's Office. Hopefully we can have this wonderful, free, family fun event next year. Last year, Chris was honored to bring an Open House and Touch a Truck to The City of Tonawanda. Wanting to bring this family friendly event to our city, Chris asked local organizations and businesses to sit a long side the City's Department trucks. Kids got to go on a touch the Fire Trucks with Bucket, DPW Trucks, and Police Vehicles to name a few.  Chris asked the Erie County Sheriffs to be apart of this event as well and was happy to have not only the Sheriffs horse, but also the Sheriffs boat.  It was a fun event for both kids and adults a like.  Sadly this years Open House was cancelled by the Mayor's office. Hopefully we can have this wonderful, family fun event next year.
