Corporex, the developer of Ovation in Newport, will put families in the driver’s seat with a Touch-a-Truck event from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 8.

Adults and children will have the chance to sit behind the wheel of a City of Newport fire truck and police cruiser, along with construction vehicles like dump trucks, backhoes, and bulldozers, throughout the day.

During the event, there will also be the Campbell County Public Library Book Bus. The event occurs at the Ovation Development Lot near the construction trailers off the West Fourth Street roundabout in Newport.

“Corporex is eager to offer children and the young at heart an opportunity to get up close and personal with these vehicles,” Corporex Vice President of Construction Alan Bogart said. “It’s especially exciting to offer children an opportunity to explore their dreams with hands-on experiences and perhaps inspire them to become our next generation of construction workers and first responders.”

The morning will also feature Ignite Your Taste Buds, an on-site food truck, and music by DJ Brody Flynn.

This will also be an opportunity for residents to see firsthand the construction progress of Ovation. A site plan of the development will also be available so that community members can see what’s to come.
