Dust and diesel at Lowood
THERE was a great turnout at the Lowood Trucks show this year with 90 trucks, and over $5000 raised for the nominated charity this year, Buy A Bale.
It was a credit to organisers Rob and Kassie Liston and Craig Severn, as well as all those working hard behind the scenes and on the day.
Many families were there with multiple generations enjoying the show.
The fantastic day was filled with sunshine, fun and food for all the family.
Major sponsors included Thoroughclean Water Blasters, Breakaways Rock 'n' Roll Dance, Social and Welfare Club, Austral Bricks and Burston Auto Parts.
