It is going to be filled with truck loads of fun
For 27 years the Penrith Working Truck Show has been held every year and this year it is on again!
The family fun event is jam packed with unlimited activities, top artists and entertainers, trade stalls & displays, games & competitions, food, drinks & beer stalls and of course there are major prizes & trophies to be won.
Gather up the kids and have Australia's best value family day.
The show is owned and fully managed by the Museum of Fire and is recognised nationally as a must in the transport industry. The show/event has been exposed for its grass roots community involvement and commitment to family value.
It is a registered charity event with all funds directed to educating families to the dangers of fire and preserving the heritage of community's bravest.
The day is packed with unlimited free amusement rides ; a total of twenty rides, musicians such as multi-award winning Australian country music duo McAlister Kemp who will be one of the many music performers on the day, The Wolfe Brothers, Kaylee Bell, Dan Murphy and many more amazing artists will be performing as well.
There will be specialist trade stalls and displays to grab those bargains or you can just simply join in some of the entertaining games that is on offer or maybe you want to try your luck and enter in one of the many competitions on the day!
It does not end there; there will be balloons, fairy floss, face painting and removable spray tattoos all for FREE! And for those hunger cravings there are many food, drinks and beer tents on offer to satisfy those cravings.
Major prizes and trophies are to be won with all truck entries, so be sure to be present to win.
The entry price includes access to the Museum of Fire as well, so check that out as there are many amazing displays of vehicles, uniforms, communications, protective gear and fire fighting tools.
