More than 100 trucks converged on the yard of Fulton Hogan’s Alexandra branch for the 2019 Alexandra Truck Show and Blossom Festival Parade

The judging was completed late morning, which gave people a good chance to look after the trucks on display.

Prize-giving followed and the coveted ‘Star of the Show’ was awarded to McClellan Freight’s impressive T904 Kenworth. As with previous years, the highlight of the truck show is the Blossom Festival Parade where the trucks drive through the people-lined main streets of Alexandra followed by spring-themed floats signifying the change of seasons.

The number of trucks entered this year was almost double that of last years’ truck show, which holds the event in good stead for next year. Check out some highlights from the show.
