FERGUS, Ont. — The Fergus Truck Show has announced its entertainment lineup for this year’s show, with some very recognizable names taking to the stage over the course of the event.
On Friday July 25, April Wine, Kim Mitchell and David Wilcox will all perform. Truck News will also take to the stage Friday, to present its annual Owner/Operator of the Year Award. The Dixie Flyers and Jessie Farrell will add a bluegrass and country flavour to the festivities on the afternoon of Saturday, July 26.
On Saturday evening, Castrol Lubricants presents Juno-nomintaed country music star Gord Bamford, whose hit ‘Stayed til Two’ has been played frequently on the airwaves. Also performing Saturday night is well-known country musician Aaron Pritchett, best known for his single ‘Hold my Beer.’
Alex J. Robinson and Aaron Lines will take to the stage on Sunday.
Of course, the real stars of the Fergus Truck Show will be the trucks themselves. Show organizers say more than 200 trucks will compete in the truck pull, which pits Canadian truckers against Americans. More than $75,000 in prizes is up for grabs during the truck pull.
There will also be a demolition derby at this year’s show, featuring vehicles in five different classes. It will be held on Sunday afternoon.
Another highlight will naturally be the Show and Shine, which is expected to feature more than 500 trucks. Organizers estimate that $150 million in equipment will be on display at the show.
