      Some local kids got the chance to sit in the driver seat of some real life monster trucks.

      Touch-A-Truck is an event where kids got the chance to explore their favorite vehicles at the Albany Museum of Art , like fire trucks, police vehicles, tractors, you name it.

      Katie Gatewood, with the Albany Museum of Art says, "we just though it would be a great event for kids to come out and see a lot of the big vehicles they see on the road and all around town and just a fun day for kids and their families to come and experience something new at the museum."

      Organizers say they had over 30 trucks.

      This was the first year for the event.
