Remember the awe you once held for larger-than-life machines going about their seemingly-impossible tasks? A fire truck racing down a street; thinking how fun a dump truck would be to operate; or if you would ever get to sit in the bucket of a tractor?
Long Beach Chamber of Commerce’s Touch A Truck event gives local children and adults alike a chance to fulfill those childhood curiosities while learning and interacting with the businesses of the community. Touch A Truck is different than a car show. Kids can interact with not only the trucks, but with the “heroes” that drive and operate them. They can hear the sirens, watch the tractor bucket move, and learn about the safety of the vehicles through fun, interactive games.
Long Beach Chamber of Commerce’s Touch A Truck is a fundraising event that provides kids of all ages with the opportunity to experience life-size vehicles and interact with community support leaders like police officers, firemen, construction workers and many more! Monies raised from this event go towards the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce High School Scholarship and Small Business Grants.
Created in 2014, local state representatives present on the recent legislative session. The breakfast allows individuals the opportunity to obtain firsthand information while creating an exchange with local elected officials in a small group business setting. This event is hosted by the Long Beach and Pass Christian Chamber of Commerce.
Created in 2015, this breakfast is held to let the Alderman have a platform to tell the businesses and citizens what has been going on in their Ward and in the city.
