IT WAS a great day out for truck lovers and wine drinkers alike as over 10,000 people flocked to the Heywood Truck and Ute Show.

The headline trucking event which attracted over 130 vehicles was run conjunction with the Victorian town's Wood, Wine and Rose Festival.

"It was amazing, the convoy is always part of the street parade, we had more trucks than we have ever had in the past,” organiser Lindy Annette of Annett's Cartage Contractors said.

"The trucks are always seen as the features of the day, and it's nice for them be such a part of the community.

"It's a fun family day, so if trucks aren't your partner's cup of tea there are other things for them to do.

"We had people travelling all the way in from Adelaide to Alexandra to be part of it,” she said.

A number of drivers had also participated in the Kelsey Moloney Memorial convoy held in Mount Gambier the evening before.

"There were a few drivers who participated in both,” Lindy said.

Only just recovering from this year's show, Lindy has already started planning the event for next year.

"This was the third show I was involved in and loved it,” the busy mother of five said.

"I was asked, and if I get asked to do something I go at it 100%; us girls have to do that,” she laughed.
