Popular Deniliquin show and expo moves to new date
USUALLY held the second weekend in September, the event's committee voted to move the Deniliquin Truck Show and Industry Expo to October 26 to take advantage of the improving climate leading in to summer.
Truck show committee president Evan Whitbourne said the move would also free up more people associated with the industry to attend the popular NSW event.
"We expect we have better weather and longer days (in daylight savings),” said Mr Whitbourne.
"It will also move the event away from football finals and another truck show held in Echuca on that same weekend in September.
"It should mean people will have more to do, more to see and we'll get more trucks.”
The same format will be used for the event, with the Deniliquin and District Wall of Fame Dinner to be held Friday, October 25, the Truck Show and Industry Expo at Deniliquin's Memorial Park on Saturday, October 26 and the memorial service at the north Deniliquin truck stop on Sunday, October 27.
Saturday's expo includes trade sites, children's entertainment, truck and motorbike show 'n' shines, a monster auction and more.
Committee secretary and treasurer Leesa Muir said as it's the fifth anniversary event, the committee is also planning "a few extra things”.
Mr Whitbourne said the Deniliquin Truck Show and Industry Expo should be on the "must see” list for anyone with an interest in the transport industry.
"We're more than a truck show,” he said.
"Because we're an industry expo, we attract a lot of leading people from all different elements of the industry to the event.
"We also have the enforcement bodies attend to provide information and speak with those attending.
"Our event really highlights and celebrates the importance of the transport industry to rural communities.”
