Monsters are Coming to Lake Charles
Want to see me turn into a 10 year old bearded kid? Watch me at a Monster Truck Show! This weekend, they will invade the Lake Charles Civic Center in full force. The dirt is getting put down, the junk cars are in the parking lot, and the trucks are showing up! I have driven by both coming to work and leaving work, just to catch a glimpse of them each time. Don't judge me!
The show will feature Skully, Crainiac, X-Maxx, Instigator, and Backdraft! In addition to these amazing trucks, a prehistoric fire breathing dinosaur will roll into the building. Megasaurus is a 3 story tall giant that picks cars up and eats them in one bite! I'd had to scoop the poop up when he's done.
A newer addition to the show will also be a mud bog and quad wars. Watch as locals compete at rates of speed your mother would fuss at you about as they race around the Civic Center trying to claim that checkered flag.
Tickets are still on sale at the Lake Charles Civic Center Box Office or at Ticketmaster.com. The Pit Party lets you get up close and personal with the trucks and their drivers. Meet them, grab an autograph, and a picture before heading up to the edge of your seat.
During intermission, there will be a Tire Toss brought to you by Southern Tire Mart in Sulphur. Random attendees will be chosen to come and throw a tire as far as they can to get their chance to win a $500 gift card to Southern Tire Mart. You might want to start working on your throwing arm now to prepare.
A HUGE thanks to Matt Ison for letting me steal his pictures from his webpage. Matt Ison Photography. They really show the insane pressure these drivers put these trucks through. Thanks again buddy, and keep up the good work!
