The eighth annual Antique Truck Show will be rolling into Port Alberni from Saturday, Aug. 30 to Sunday, Aug. 31.

The much anticipated event feature antique trucks, both local and from all over Vancouver island.

Truck enthusiasts can also get their hands on a couple of antique trucks as the B.C. Forest Discovery Centre is selling a 1949 Diamond T and a 1918 Maxwell truck.

On Aug. 30, Lou Desbiens will be doing demonstrations with their radio-controlled excavators, dump trucks and graders.

They’ll be doing everything from building roads to digging to yarding and loading trucks so come on by and learn how it all works.

For the budding truck enthusiast there’ll be a sandbox with toy trucks and equipment as well as an activity table inside the Industrial Heritage Centre.

This year’s event will be held at the Industrial Heritage Centre located at 3250 9th Ave., right beside the Port Alberni Curling Club. Admission is free and the event runs from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on both days.
