THE big boys rolled into town yesterday in the form of monster trucks that thrilled a crowd of thousands at Orange Showground.
The daredevil show featured a warm-up act of extreme freestyle motocross riders who thrilled the crowd with their skills jumping over cars and huge ramps.
The monster truck show followed with the huge machines lumbering their way over hurdles, sometimes crashing their way over five cars at a time.
Show organiser Greg Buckham said the trucks were among the biggest in the world.
The show was a crowd pleaser for all ages.
Portable stands were brought in, others took up a vantage point as best they could around the perimeter of the showground, while some had a ringside seat on the back of trucks pulled up to one side of the showground.
Orange Lions Club members manned the gates and will be taking a percentage to donate to local charity.
Among the drivers was Kreg Christiansen who is considered to be top of his field in the United States.
