WALCOTT, IOWA — The World’s Largest Truckstop celebrated America’s truckers last week in a big way with The 31st Annual Walcott Truckers Jamboree. Held July 8-9, the event hosted tens of thousands of drivers and their families. During the two days, guests enjoyed over 175 exhibits; a Super Truck Beauty Contest with 56 contestants; a fantastic antique truck display with over 200 vehicles; delicious Iowa pork chop cookout; Trucker Olympics; Carnival Games; a crowd-pleasing concert by country superstar Tracy Lawrence, sponsored in part by Mobil Delvac; a fireworks display and loads of fun!
“The Walcott Truckers Jamboree is a celebration of trucking,” said Heather DeBaillie, Iowa 80 Truckstop’s marketing director. “Nothing would get delivered without truckers and that is a message that the Jamboree allows us to share with the general public.”
The Iowa 80 Trucking Museum hosted a party of its own on July 9th to celebrate the 100th birthday of the 1910 Avery Farm Truck in the museum’s collection. Hundreds visited the museum to join in the celebration; complete with cake and balloons.
The Walcott Truckers Jamboree has been celebrating truckers, rain or shine, since 1979. “The Walcott Truckers Jamboree is an event that we hope instills pride in drivers and encourages them to celebrate the important job they do. The Jamboree is the perfect chance for us to say thank you,” says Delia Moon Meier, Iowa 80 Truckstop Senior Vice President.
Next year’s Walcott Truckers Jamboree will be held Thursday and Friday, July 14 & 15, 2011
