Blossom Festival bonanza

Monday, November 5, 2018

Bigger, brighter, blossoming… The 2018 Alexandra Blossom Festival truck show proved as popular as ever, with a total of 89 trucks competing for honours this year, an increase on last year’s total.
The great team from Heavy Trucks was again the sponsor. The Star of the Show award went to Ricky Rodgers from Summerland Express Freight Ltd with his immaculate Western Star, a deserving winner considering the 916,000 kilometres on its clock. He also took out the Best Western Star prize.
