A truck show is coming to the Cloverdale Fairgrounds.
The B.C. Vintage Truck Museum is set to host the “National Truck Show” Friday July 8 and Saturday July 9 in the parking lot adjacent to the museum on the Fairgrounds.
“The show will celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Hayes Anderson Truck and the 75th Anniversary of the Pacific Truck,” said Anna Dean, the president of the Surrey Heritage Society. The Surrey Heritage Society is the organization that runs the truck museum.
“Exhibits will include many rare vehicles including a 1929 Packard, a Rumley steam tractor, and the “Highway thru Hell” Hayes Tow Truck,” Dean added.
The National Truck Show will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.
Dean said the truck museum will also be open for tours while the show is on and there will be food and drinks available on site both days.
Dean added the National Truck Show is usually a one-day event, but with the anticipated interest, they’ve decided to expand it into two days this year
“We’re expecting a lot of people,” said Dean. “I think families will get a lot of enjoyment out of it and I think it will be a very interesting two days.”
The B.C. Vintage Truck Museum is open every Wednesday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The museum is located on the Cloverdale Fairgrounds at 6022- 176th Street. Admission is by donation. Visit bctruckmuseum.org for more info.
