What BigRoad learned at the Fergus Truck Show – Photo Essay

This past weekend, BigRoad went on a road trip to the annual Fergus Truck Show.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I thought that the most appropriate way to show what we learned at the show was through a photo essay. Enjoy!


Lesson 1: Trade Show tents can survive “tornadic” activity.

Starting of the show, the booth isn’t looking too shabby – fast forward to the next day when a severe thunderstorm decided to roll through, things definitely looked a little different.

Just kidding! Our tent did survive though!


Lesson 2: There are 3 types of pulls that take place at the Fergus Truck Show (and the competition is stiff)…

The classic tractor pull.

The lawn tractor pull – surprisingly lawn tractors can pull more weight than one would have thought.

Lesson 3: Beer is definitely the drink of choice amongst show-goers. 

Well, the Sleeman fleet showed up…

And was there any doubt that the truck show classics would make an appearance?! Hello Molson, thanks for bringing your buddy Coors!

Lesson 4: Of course the O.P.P. Truck would show up, it’s a truck show!

For those who over-indulged in the festivities, the portable drunk tank was near by.

Lesson 5: At the end of the day, rain or shine, everyone has fun at the Fergus Truck Show!
