Commercial vehicle manufacturer, Western Star has announced registrations are now open for the 2019 Show n Shine event set to be held at the Museum of Fire in Penrith, NSW Sunday 3 November.
The family event will feature Fabian Coulthard and Scott McLaughlin of Supercars team DJR Team Penske in addition to live music and food and beverage vendors.
Western Star owners are encouraged to contact their local Western Star dealer if they are keen to showcase their truck at the annual event.
The competition categories include Best Western Star under five years, Best Western Star fleet, Best heritage truck and Best Western Star rigid or tipper.
Last year Show n Shine was held in Ipswich.
“We anticipate that this year’s event will yet again feature a spectacular array of shining Stars along with a host of free, fun activities for the whole family,” said Dale Christensen, Western Star Trucks, Penske Commercial Vehicles, National sales manager.
“After hosting the last two events in Queensland, we held discussions with our wider dealer network to gauge feedback on the event," he said.
“And after much consideration, and in partnership with our local Sydney dealers Penske Power Systems and Clancy’s Truck and Trailer, we decided to move the event south for 2019," he said.
“Each year the Show n Shine has joined with a charity partner raising much-needed funds for various organisations.
“By partnering with the Museum of Fire this year, attendees will have the opportunity to support the museum in its efforts to promote the Australian firefighting community.”
