Raymour & Flanigan held their first ever "Touch a Truck," event in West Springfield Saturday afternoon.

The free community event gave local children the chance to see emergency response vehicles, sports cars and large trucks up close.

One West Springfield resident told 22News, Saturday's warmer weather made the event enjoyable and bearable.

"Being able to walk around and it not being a freezing cold day, and being able to look and touch the trucks," said Cherie Frasco.

Dozens of families came out to get their faces painted, play with balloon animals and of course get a picture with Santa.
