Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

The im­por­tance of the truck­ing and trans­port in­dus­try to the South­ern Rive­rina will be cel­e­brated in De­niliquin this week­end, at the an­nual De­niliquin Truck Show and In­dus­try Expo.

It is part of a huge trans­port in­dus­try week­end for the re­gion, and or­gan­is­ers are ex­pect­ing be­tween 90 and 100 trucks to be show­cased.

The Truck Show and In­dus­try Expo will be held at De­niliquin’s Memo­rial Park this Satur­day from 10am, and or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Leesa Muir said it will be packed with dis­plays and en­ter­tain­ment.

‘‘We have so much to do for the whole fam­ily — there’s a truck show and shine, a bike show and shine, chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment in­clud­ing sideshow rides, trade dis­plays, in­dus­try in­for­ma­tion, tech­nol­ogy and more,’’ she said.

On the Fri­day evening, there will be a De­niliquin & Dis­trict Trans­port Wall of Fame In­duc­tion Din­ner from 6.30pm at the De­niliquin RSL Club.

The ac­tion then kicks off at Memo­rial Park the next day with gates open­ing from 10am.

With full bar and cater­ing fa­cil­i­ties and plenty of fun for the whole fam­ily, en­joy a fun day at the site be­fore head­ing to the De­niliquin Golf Club for the Truck Show ‘af­ter party’. To be held from 6pm, the event will fea­ture mu­sic by One OB.

‘‘There will be live en­ter­tain­ment, tasty food choices and a fully stocked bar, and don’t for­get the free cour­tesy bus — the Golf Club has got the lot,’’ Ms Muir said.

The week­end will wrap up with the memo­rial ser­vice at the in­dus­try’s Wall of Fame mon­u­ment at the David­son St Rest Stop, on Sun­day at 11am.

It will be lead by Fin­ley High School Chap­lain Josh Renn, who is also a truck driver.

‘‘We wanted to do some­thing to pay tribute to those in the in­dus­try no longer with us, and we thought adding a memo­rial ser­vice would be fit­ting,’’ Ms Muir said.

‘‘It will be a mem­o­rable and spe­cial end­ing to a fan­tas­tic week­end.’’
