June 25, 2021 – Back by popular demand, the City of Midland invites big truck aficionados of all ages to its second annual DON’T Touch a Truck vehicle parade at Plymouth Park, 1508 E. Wheeler Street, on Thursday, July 22 at 10 a.m.

At DON’T Touch a Truck, attendees will be treated to a contactless parade of the many vehicles and pieces of heavy equipment the City of Midland uses to keep the community running smoothly, including police cars, fire engines, dump trucks, refuse trucks, construction equipment, and more. Flashing lights and an occasional honking horn should be expected.

Vehicles will make two laps along a route beginning at the south end of Plymouth Park, traveling north on Plymouth Park Drive from E. Sugnet Road to Wheeler Street, exiting at Wheeler, then heading east on Wheeler, south on Swede Avenue, and west on E. Sugnet.

Attendees are encouraged to spread out along the event’s route to make space for everyone to enjoy. Kids can join in the fun by creating a sign to hold up as the drivers pass by!

To provide a safe and efficient driving route for City vehicles, the following roadways will be closed to through traffic beginning at 9:30 a.m.:

  • Plymouth Park Drive from E. Wheeler Street to E. Sugnet Road (access will be allowed for parking within the park)
  • Plymouth Street at Plymouth Park Drive
  • Hillgrove Parkway at St. Andrews Road
  • E. St. Andrews Road at E. Sugnet Road 

Parking for the event will be available at the Plymouth Park Fun Zone and park shelter, Plymouth Pool, Plymouth Elementary School, and Northeast Middle School. Residents are asked not to park vehicles on streets along the event’s driving route. Access to parking areas located inside Plymouth Park will close at 9:50 a.m. 

In the event of rain or severe weather, DON’T Touch a Truck will be rescheduled for Friday, July 23 at 10 a.m.
