Looking for something fun (and free) to do this weekend? Come check out the FREE Eau Claire Big Rig Truck Show (ECBRTS) this weekend, Friday August 17 through Sunday, August 19.Eau Claire Big Rig Truck Show

This is a very unique event in our area, as it is only one of six big rig truck shows held in the United States this year.

The ECBRTS is held in the Chippewa Valley Technical College parking lot off of Clairemont Ave. / HWY 12. This event features over-the-road semi-trucks from across the United States. These show/working trucks will compete for awards and prizes in several categories such as paint, mural design, engine, and sleepers.

View the complete schedule on the ECBRTS web site. There will be food and exhibitor tents. Some of the highlights of the schedule include a movie & popcorn night on Friday night and a truck parade on Saturday night.

This is a great event that the whole family can enjoy. I really enjoy this event, even though I don’t know anything about trucks! Everyone can appreciate the extensive, detailed work  that has been done on these trucks, such as custom painting, shiny chrome features, impressive cabin/living areas, as well as the stories behind the trucks. Plus, everyone loves cheese curds!

This event is sponsored by The National Association of Show Trucks (NAST) and Photo Card Specialists, Inc. (PCS) and some of the proceeds from this event will go to United Cerebral Palsy and the Chippewa Valley Chapter of SPAAMFAA.
