LoveHendo Saturday - Touch a Truck
Saturday, August 14, 2021
Round up the whole family to see, touch, and learn about our City of Hendersonville’s many fascinating trucks and vehicles on August 14 at the monthly LoveHendo Saturday! In partnership with the City’s Police, Fire, Public Works, and Water & Sewer departments, the whole family can learn about city services in a fun day on Main Street.
The idea for a Touch a Truck was developed by the City of Hendersonville’s Service Excellence Team as well as Sarah and Erika Evers of Dancing Bear Toys. The partnership is a natural fit to bring community partners together to educate visitors and locals in a fun way. Children will be able to get a passport stamped for each vehicle they visit and receive a prize after visiting all the stations along Main Street.
The Service Excellence program at the City of Hendersonville encourages City employees to provide great customer service and promotes collaboration between departments. The program also recognizes employees who go above and beyond to support residents, coworkers, visitors, and the community.
Dancing Bear Toys is a gathering place for locals and a place for tourists to experience our region's wacky side. They are committed to giving back to our community through free events, donations, and a free lending library of toys for teachers
LoveHendo Saturday is an open street activity taking place the Second Saturday of each month May – December (except for September) to provide a unique downtown experience for all ages. Downtown businesses may expand into the street to provide open air activity and experiences. Main Street will be closed to vehicular traffic from 6th Avenue to 2nd Avenue, with the Touch a Truck event happening from 10am-2pm and a classic car show at 5pm.
