This weekend Szeged will host the 20th Annual Truck Festival! The organizers say that there will be 400 trucks participating from all over the world, even the United States (do people really ship their semis to Hungary for this?!).
We saw the gathering last year across the Tisza and it looked like a roaring good time. There will be a laser show, music acts and even a speed race (so keep your kids inside and off the roads, folks).
But the highlight will be the truck beauty pageant, which I guess is kind of like Toddlers and Tiaras, but for 12,000 pound big rigs.
I don’t know who made this poster but I want to shake his hand:
A cowboy hat on top of the Szeged sign?! Part of a Dom cross accidentally masked out in Photoshop! Trucks rumbling through what seems to be an American west desert road! P-U-R-E genius.
Anyway we won’t be able to go because we have to attend a wedding and a carrot festival. But next year, I’ll be there with bells on.
