FERGUS, Ont. -The Fergus Truck Show stayed true to its title as one of the best festivals in Ontario during its 23rd installment July 24-27.

Truck customizing enthusiasts turned out in droves to take part in the event’s annual show’n’shine competition, which featured about 500 trucks pitted against each other in various categories (see opposite page for selected winners).

The event also attracted some big names in the music biz, with Canadian rockers April Wine and Kim Mitchell, David Wilcox and country stars such as Aaron Pritchett among the many acts to grace the main stage.

About 200 participants competed for $75,000 in prizes at the truck and tractor pull on Thursday, while revelers enjoyed the sights, sounds and smashes at Sunday’s demolition derby.

Over 225 trade show exhibitors were present to display the latest equipment, technology and accessories throughout the weekend.

Truck News was on-site to present its annual Owner/Operator of the Year Award (see cover story), but also got out its video cameras to film a segment for its weekly WebTV show, Transportation Matters. To view the video, visit www.
