Downtown Winona was filled with laughing kids, inflatable slides, honking horns, and lots of trucks to touch, as hundreds gathered in the streets for Touch a Truck and Play Streets on Saturday.
“The weather is perfect for it,” Winona resident Katie Freitag said with a smile behind her aviator glasses as her 3-year old daughter Mae Belle waited in line for the inflatable bounce house. “The more street parties and family friendly activities the better.”
Katie and her husband Ben Freitag had tried to bring their daughter to Touch A Truck last year, but she was a bit young for the honking and it was too hot of a day for them to stay long. Although Mae Belle didn’t need it this time, the event included a quiet time where there was no honking for sensitive ears.
