Mountain Village: 10th Annual Touch-A-Truck, 6/24

Mountain Munchkins Child Care and Preschool hosts the 10th annual Touch-A-Truck, a kid-centric fundraising event which allows children to touch, climb, explore, and sit in the driver’s seat of a variety of riding machines with four wheels: service vehicles, work equipment, fire trucks, and police cars. Open to the public and organized by Munchkins parents, all proceeds raised will go towards enrichment activities, learning tools and scholarships.

Touch-A-Truck takes place Saturday, June 24, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Carhenge parking lot at the base of Chair 7 in Telluride. The event is open to the public, admission is $5 per adult and child. Other activities include a kids area with face painting, tattoos, and live music.

“We are excited for our tenth annual Touch-A-Truck event. Last year we raised $12,000 with all of the proceeds going towards scholarships, curriculum materials and new playground equipment. This year we are raising money for enrichment activities, learning tools, and scholarships for both our infant/toddler program and preschool,” explained Mountain Munchkins Director Dawn Katz. “We feel so fortunate to have the continued support from the Town of Mountain Village. Their awareness of the importance of high-quality, early childhood education has made this program possible. We could only hope that other community leaders will adopt this supportive vision.”  

Mountain Munchkins will hold two raffles during the event. Now until the event, patrons can purchase a $10 raffle ticket through Mountain Munchkins parents to win festival passes for the Ride Festival, Telluride Yoga Festival, Telluride Blues & Brews, and Telluride Jazz Festival. There will be an additional prize drawing for a Skuut and Trike bike.

Mountain Munchkins is the only childcare and preschool that serves children from infancy until kindergarten. Children are exposed to a wide variety of age-appropriate activities that encourage a lifetime of learning.

Situated in the heart of the breathtaking San Juan Mountains, Mountain Village was incorporated in 1995 as a home rule municipality.  Its founders envisioned a European-style ski-in/ski-out, pedestrian-friendly destination resort that would complement the historic mining town of Telluride. A three-stage gondola transportation system connects the Town of Mountain Village with the Town of Telluride. Situated at 9,500 feet, Mountain Village is comparably a world apart from other resorts: it is innately spectacular, beautifully orchestrated and planned, and overflowing with style, charm and sophistication.
