Touch a Truck

July 9, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm


On Saturday, July 9th, Stepping Stones Children’s Center will host its second “Touch a Truck” event, a family-friendly gathering that will allow kids to honk, climb on and explore the vehicles that serve and protect Crested Butte and Gunnison and you can meet the hometown heroes who operate them. We will be raising money to help pay for our new school van. Participating trucks include emergency vehicles from the Crested Butte Fire Protection District and Gunnison County Sheriff's department; construction equipment from Somrak Concept + Structure and Pinnacle Construction and Roofing; a concrete pump crane from Sparta; a truck from Western Mountain Rescue Team and CB Search and Rescue; a bus from GWSD, Mountain Express and our local RTA bus; trucks from the Town of Crested Butte’s Public Works Department and the Town of Mount Crested Butte’s Water and Sanitation District; a fish transportation truck from the Roaring Judy Fish Hatchery; and more. We will also have a bake sale, raffle, book sale and face painting.

Annual events in Crested Butte and Gunnison

Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
