Downtown Library will have a lot of them at its annual Touch a Truck event this Saturday, December 29. 

Kids of all ages can get behind the wheel and honk a few horns from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The wide variety of trucks include ones from the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, Bradenton Police Department, Emergency Medical Services, Utilities and Big Earth Landscape Supply.

This is the fifth year Manatee Libraries has hosted this free event for families during the school winter break. It normally draws hundreds of attendees.
