Head to Capreol this Saturday for the seventh annual Big Truck Showcase.

The annual event by the Northern Ontario Railroad Museum and Heritage Centre (NORMHC) takes place May 18th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 26 Bloor St. in Capreol. 

Organizers promise a fun-filled family day with plenty of large trucks, heavy equipment, emergency vehicles, garbage trucks and more on display. 

“Families and children are encouraged to climb inside, explore, sound sirens, honk horns and take tons of pictures,” the railroad museum said in a news release. 

Admission to the park is free.

“This year, the event welcomes a fully functional replica of the DeLorean from the ‘Back to the Future’ film franchise (‘fully functional’ aside from the time travel, we think),” the release states. “Visitors will have an opportunity to have their photo taken with the vehicle along with special guests.”

Visitors can take advantage of free transit to and from the event courtesy of GOVA Transit. 

“Simply board GOVA and inform the driver you are travelling for this event, and you can ride for free.”

The Big Truck event is also an opportunity for museum members to renew their membership for the season.
