For over 40 years truck lovers have rumbled their way to the Gore Truck Show to show off their gleaming pride and joy.

Every year it gets bigger and better with over 130 trucks both big and small taking part in the parade last year, all competing for best truck in their categories and the premier title of King Rig.

An impressive display is held at Transport Repairs Yard where you can get up close, and then enjoy the parade of gleaming rigs up Gore's Main Street.
