The "Truth" tour aimed at preventing teen smoking is coming to the Taste of Chicago. 

The tour includes a truckload of teens making stops around the country to talk with their peers about the dangers of tobacco. 

They're teaming up with the Chicago Tobacco Prevention Project and will be parking their orange truck at the Taste on Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. 

The truck features a DJ booth, sound system, dance floor and lounge area where teens can hang out and share information about tobacco products.
