Big rigs ready to roll into Lake George

After arriving at Exit 22 in Lake George, the truckers will re-group before heading through the village on Canada St. in a parade beginning at about 12:30 p.m. This convoy will end at Fort William Henry, where the show and expo are sited.

Three Nashville bands, including Terry Wooley and his group, will be performing country-western music during the afternoon on the resort grounds, he said.

At 6 :30 p.m., an awards banquet will be held, granting trophies to the most impressive rigs in the afternoon's Show-n-Shine event, he said.

Sutton said that some impressive customized cabs appearing on television's Trick My Truck series will likely be in the show.

"There will definitely be some exotic, wild trucks in the show," he said, noting that some entries might be worth many hundreds of thousands of dollars. "There will be all sorts of real cool stuff you wouldn't normally see."

The evening ends with a fireworks cruise - tickets are still available by calling (585) 300-7327, he said. The public can watch the display on the shoreline at about 9:30 p.m.

Sutton said he's hoping the village is filled this weekend with spectators as well as truck cabs, truckers and their fancy hauling machines.

"We're getting revved up and ready to go," he said.
