DENISON, Texas -- Texoma Health Foundation Park was crowded with kids Thursday morning as the city hosted its first-ever Touch-a-Truck event.

Denison fire, police, public works and library staff brought their vehicles so children could learn more about what they do.

Youngsters were encouraged to climb on the trucks and honk the horns.

"We thought it was a good time, with spring break," said Sunny Mackey, the city's director of community engagement. "I constantly hear people say, 'What can we do with the kids?'  ... So we thought what a great idea to show off our park."

The city is planning another Touch-a-Truck event this summer.
