42,000 reasons to smile
Convoy has huge turnout
HELD on a warm mid-September day, the annual Riverina Truck Show and Kids Convoy has been an outstanding success, with an impressive procession of trucks through the Wagga Wagga city centre.
The staging area at the Bomen Saleyards was a hive of activity on the Saturday morning as trucks assembled to make their run though the Wagga Wagga CBD to the shores of Lake Albert for the show and shine and family day.
In what was the second largest turnout since the inaugural event in 2014, an impressive 158 trucks registered for the convoy, with trucks coming from as far afield as Melbourne, Canberra and across the wider Riverina region.
With raffles, an auction of donated goods, along with all other money raised, the total for 2017 amounted to a whopping $42,000, all of which will be put to good use improving the lives of kids with serious illnesses.
