Badger State Truck Show this weekend

Jul 25, 2017 06:21AM ● Published by Dale Norenberg

Attendees are promised an amazing showcase of semi-truck tractors and trailers at the new three-day event – The Badger State Truck Show.  The free, inaugural event, scheduled for July 28-30, will include many family-friendly activities.  Entertainment includes a children’s play area and free truck rides all weekend long.  Children will enjoy free rides from a half dozen trucks on the Dodge County Fairgrounds track. Families can enjoy one-on-one conversations with the drivers and hear their personal stories of their miles on the road.

Three hundred decorated and top-notch trailers and semi-trucks are expected to be on showcase, making it the largest in the area.  Come to browse or stay for the duration.  Food vendors will also be offering refreshments for purchase.

Shane Voss, Founder and President of the Badger State Large Cars and Big Rigs and The Badger State Truck Show looks forward to bringing the trucking community to the local community in Beaver Dam. He also will be helping promote local, small businesses at the vendor event throughout the weekend.

Attendees may shop with local vendors and test samples from Pampered Chef, Plexus, Thirty-one, Mary Kay – and more.  Vendors from the trucking industry will also have booths available for viewing and shopping.  Interested vendors and businesses may still register online.

There are also still openings for drivers to participate in the truck show.  Drivers may register their truck on the Badger State Truck Show website.

An amusing trucking costume will be held on Friday evening, along with live music from Bill Weaver, a truck driver, and musician.  Saturday will feature semi-tractor pulls around the track at the Dodge County Fairgrounds.
