Although the forecast called for rain Sunday, blue skies reigned over the 2nd annual Eastham Touch-A-Truck at the Wellfleet Drive-In.  Flags flew atop ladder and bucket trucks and truck horns and the whoops and sirens of emergency vehicles filled the air.

Local construction companies were well represented as were first responders.  From dump trucks to a USCG rescue boat, there were plenty of big, intriguing vehicles to awe kids of all ages.

The event, now in its second year, benefits the Eastham Committee on Early Childhood (ECEC).  In addition to the $5 per person admission fee, there were raffles for cool prizes, Eastham Touch-A-Truck t-shirts for sale and a dunk tank at the center of it all.

An independent, non-profit, ECEC operates an afterschool program for kids in grades kindergarten through 5th grade at Eastham Elementary School.
