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.
(Yes those are people running for their lives)
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 pick-up truck 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...
A lone ranger carrying Sapporo came...
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!
It was a great weekend! Thank you to everyone who stopped by the BigRoad tent.
