The Northern Ontario Railroad Museum and Heritage Centre presents its sixth annual Big Truck Showcase May 20.
The event takes place at the railroad museum at 26 Bloor St. in Capreol from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
The event will be a fun-filled family day with numerous large trucks, heavy equipment, and everyday trucks commonly seen on our streets, such as fire trucks, buses, garbage trucks and more on display.
Families and children are encouraged to climb inside, explore, sound sirens, honk horns and take tons of pictures. Admission is free.
There will also be a barbecue and several vendors on site.
This year, the event will welcome special guest “Brampton Batman” and his iconic Batmobile built using a Chevrolet Caprice modelled after the vehicle used in the 1989 Batman movie starring Michael Keaton.
Visitors will have an opportunity to have their photo taken with the vehicle, and who knows who else might be sneaking around the grounds of Prescott Park.
“I can’t wait to be in Capreol this weekend made possible by the Bat Signal lit by the Northern Ontario Railroad Museum and Heritage Centre. Looking forward to meeting everyone as I arrive in the Batmobile,” said Brampton Batman.
“We are very excited to kick-off the season alongside Brampton Batman and welcome visitors back to the museum,” said Joanne Bowers, Chief Administrative Officer, NORMHC.
Free transit will be available to and from the event. Simply board GOVA and inform the driver you are travelling for this event, and you can ride for free.
A shuttle service will be provided from the Capreol Community Centre and Arena to the museum courtesy of Northway Bus Lines.
