Looking for some family-friendly fun?

Look no further than Cognition’s Carnival and Touch-A-Truck Saturday, Sept. 24 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in Downtown Mocksville.

This event will provide the opportunity for families to experience some of the fun and engaging activities Cognition offers all year long.

The grassy lawn next Cognition on Salisbury Street will become the “midway” with fair-themed games and contests. Inside the building, the space will be transformed into an “Exhibition Hall” where families will be able to browse STEAM-related projects entered by local kids. There will also be other family-friendly entertainment like face painting, music, and a magician.

Have a hands-on, up-close experience with all types of vehicles.

“Touch-A-Truck will provide a unique opportunity for children of all ages to explore many types of vehicles – public service, emergency, utility, transportation, recreational, farm, construction, and other cool trucks – all in one place,” said Jessica Huyett, Cognition site director.

The Touch-A-Truck showcase will be held across the street in the Town Hall parking lot and along Salisbury Street.

“We first brought Touch-a-Truck to Davie County in 2019 as part of our capital campaign to open Cognition. After a couple of years, we are excited to bring this engaging, family-friendly event back,” said Cammie Webb, board president.
