Shows in general have been in short supply given the turbulent year 2020 has been. So it was good to see the evergreen Alexandra Blossom Festival Parade of Trucks retain its spot on the calendar.

The 64th annual Alexandra Blossom Festival Parade of Trucks reflected just what a year 2020 has been, with entrant numbers well down on previous years. Those who turned up though, turned up with quality, and when you‘re around truckies at a truck show in the sunshine, things are always positive. Once again, the good people at Fulton Hogan provided the yard. TyreLand, Carters Tyre Service, Royal Wolf, Radio Central, TIL Logistics, ATL Haulage and Fulton Hogan all jumped on board for sponsorship and this was greatly appreciated by the organisers. Next year is the 65th show so fingers crossed for bigger numbers once again.
