The fun-filled extravaganza will also offer military displays, Sea World and Star Wars characters, slot car races, live music, food trucks, face painting and much more! Touch A Truck (TAT) San Diego is presented by Max’s Ring of Fire, a local kids cancer fundraising and advocacy group, and 100 percent of the event proceeds will be used to support childhood cancer research and clinical trials.

“The public’s response to Touch A Truck has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic, and we are thrilled to have the additional space that Qualcomm Stadium offers for this year’s event,” says Melissa Mikulak, co-founder of Max’s Ring of Fire. “Our son Max loved trucks and machines of all kinds, and celebrating that appreciation with other families is the perfect way to honor his memory while raising money to help fight childhood cancer.”

A bevy of delicious eats will also be available, with more than 15 food trucks already slated for the event.
