After a year of having not much to do, it looks like events are starting to be planned and happen in Southwest Louisiana. We just found out there will be a monster truck show in Lake Charles coming up at the end of the month.

The Monster Tuck Nitro Tour is set for three performances at the Burton Coliseum in South Lake Charles (Friday, March 26 at 7:30pm and Saturday, March 27 at 1:30pm and 7:30pm), featuring those huge trucks flying in the air and crushing things which makes most people smile just thinking about it.

The Nitro tour will feature monster trucks like Dysfunctional, Super Trooper, Just Get Er Done (The Original) and Just Get Er Done (2nd generation), along with quad wars and mud bogs featured during each event.

The show also features a pit party and autograph session with the drivers or you could choose to take a ride in one of the monster trucks. Additional tickets will need to be purchased for these extra events along with your regular ticket. The pit party and autograph sessions will start an hour and a half before the show starts, so get there early.

We wanted to pass along the good news that finally a cool event is coming to Southwest Louisiana. Come on festivals, please be next.
