Truck Pull & Show ‘N’ Shine

June 25, 2022 All day

Vroom! The Truck Pull and Show ‘N’ Shine returns to Vankleek Hill on Saturday, June 25, after a two-year break due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The gates open at 9 a.m. and the pull starts at 2 p.m. New this year is a Light and Sound Show, which will take place in the Show ‘N’ Shine area from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m., followed by live music indoors to round out the evening. What is a Show ‘N’ Shine? For you non-truckers, it is a chance for truck owners to show off their trucks, which can be visited by members of the public. For the most part, these trucks are hauling goods across North America or are at work in construction or at other work sites but for this one day, all trucker-operators and their trucks have to do is to simply shine!
