For a day of trucking good fun
It's that time of year again when local residents and firefighters, show enthusiasts and members of the transport industry and the Penrith Museum of Fire get together for one day of non-stop fun and entertainment.

The day features hundreds of exhibits from across the country - immaculately kept trucks and gear polished and competing for prestigious awards and major prizes.

The exhibits make for great photo ops, especially those that allow you to climb in and get a real feel for what it's like to be behind the wheel of a truck.

The show also features specialist trade stalls and displays, food and drink stalls, a charity auction from 11.00-12.00 noon, and performances by country rock stars such as McAlister Kemp, The Wolfe Brothers and The Jared Porter Band.

Meanwhile, colourful characters and street performers, free rides, free faceprinting and airbrush tattoos, and free fairy floss will keep the kids busy. Please note that waiting times for each of these vary due to sometimes scary queues.

Nonetheless, with all this free entertainment, it's no wonder the Annual Penrith Working Truck Show prides itself on being "Australia's Best Value Family Day."
