2015 PENRITH WORKING TRUCK SHOW
For 27 years the Trucking fraternity have cultivated their prize rigs into show condition, in support of Charity.
Each year over 200 of Australia’s finest trucks gather at the Museum of Fire for Australia’s Premier Working Truck Show, with all funds directed towards saving our families from the dangers of fire while preserving the heritage of our community’s bravest.
The unique feature of the Show is that each truck must be a working truck and not just a showpiece or collectors item. Each truck is entered into one or more of 25 different categories to compete for trophies for the best in each class.
Drivers spend hours cleaning and polishing their prize possession in an attempt at being declared the best truck in their class. The award of a trophy at the Working Truck Show has become an industry icon and prestigious recognition for the owner.
The Museum of Fire, located in the old Penrith Power Station, 1 Museum Drive (off Castlereagh Road) opened as Australia’s only dedicated Fire Safety Education Centre in 1986.
Over the past 27 years, approximately 50 000 visitors per year pass through the Museum which houses one of the finest collections of firefighting memorabilia in the world.
From its humble conception twenty years ago, the Working Truck Show has grown from a gathering of trucking enthusiasts to a major corporate and family event which now takes months of planning and preparation and is recognised as Australia’s Premier Truck Show, attracting in excess of 12 000 visitors.
Country Music extravaganza has always been a major attraction at the Truck Show and this year will be no exception. Live on Stage will be McAlister Kemp, The Wolfe Brothers, Kaylens Rain, Jared Porter, Christie Lamb and much more.
Up to three Children are admitted FREE with a paying adult and will enjoy twelve of the best “thrill” rides and other amusements absolutely free. Add to this, food and drink stalls, free face painting and giveaways, and you have the Ultimate Family Fun Day package while supporting a worthwhile charitable event.
The Working Truck Show is on at the Museum of Fire on Sunday 29th March 2015 from 8.00 am to 5.00 pm. Admission at the gate $30 adults, up to three (3) children under 16 years free with adult entry, but unfortunately no concession discounts apply as show is already heavily discounted.
