We're Going to... Peterborough Truckfest 2017

08:55


If there's one thing that Zach loves, it's vehicles. He is seriously obsessed with anything that has wheels, and has been pretty much since the word go. Every time he sees a bus he waves at it and says hello, we have spent countless afternoons sat watching trains go by, and we have a million and one toy cars which I always find myself standing on. In fact, I can’t even remember a day where he hasn’t played with or been excited over seeing a vehicle.


I was kindly invited to take Zach to Truckfest in Peterborough at the East of England Showground, and I’m pretty certain that he will absolutely love it! Neither Jono or I have been before, and when we first read about the event we weren't sure whether it was suitable for families with young children, but after a bit of research it appears that there is lots to entertain the kids, and we can’t wait to see the big cheesy grin on his face as he takes it all in.


These are thing things we are most excited about:

The Trucks

Obviously, this is the main attraction, and although I can't claim to be a big truck fan, I really am looking forward to seeing all of the different designs and of course the huge monster trucks. I think that Zach will be in his element looking at them all, and I can just picture him now, waving at them and saying hello! Jono is obviously into vehicles and driving too, so he is hoping to get up close to some trucks and maybe even get inside one.

The Children’s Funfair

Aside from seeing all the trucks, one thing we're really excited about is the funfair. They are always so much fun, and Zach absolutely loves going on rides - especially the tea cups - so I'm hoping there will be a few he can go on! We'll probably also try our luck at those stalls where you have to throw hoops or hook a duck, and maybe Jono or I might go on one of the bigger rides!

The Fireworks

One thing I didn't know about Truckfest is that there is a firework show at the end of the day. I am a huuuuge sucker for fireworks, so I am really looking forward to this, and I hope that Zach will love them too. He has only seen them twice before, so I'm not sure how he will react, but I'm pretty confident that he will really enjoy watching them.

Taking a Picnic

We were bought a beautiful picnic basket for Christmas, but so far we haven't had a chance to use it. I think that truckfest will be the perfect opportunity to take it out, and I am already planning what tasty treats we can fill it with. Of course, we'll have to battle with Zach, as he's not got a very good track record when it comes to sitting still, and we'll have to keep our fingers crossed for good weather too!


There are still tickets available for Peterborough Truckfest, which is on the 30th April and 1st of May, if you fancy coming along and joining in with all the fun!
