Fort Walla Walla Museum is happy to welcome back the American Truck Historical Society, who will be hosting their large scale car and truck show.
The truck show is organized and run by the Blue Mountain Chapter of the ATHS. They are anticipating a large turnout of vehicles, including farm trucks, pickups, semis, engines and more.
There will also be a modern wildfire-fighting truck and a 3,000 lb stationary diesel engine on site.
Participants bringing trucks for display are encouraged to arrive at the museum by 9 a.m. The event will open to the public at 10 a.m.
Incorporated in 1971, the American Truck Historical Society was formed to preserve the history of trucks, the trucking industry, and its pioneers. An annual convention has been held each year since 1972 with a public antique truck show added in 1980. These shows have grown to over 1,000 trucks, fire apparatus, buses and RVs, military, and special interest vehicles. The ATHS has members in all 50 states and 23 countries.
The cost of the event is included with the general museum admission: $8 general; $7 seniors/students; $3 children 6-12.
