LIMA — The 32nd Annual O’Reilly Auto Parts Spring 4-Wheel Jamboree Nationals rumble into the Allen County Fairgrounds this weekend.
“It’s a huge event in Lima, and we’re definitely proud to be there,” said Emily Boden, event organizer. “We like to dub it the state fair for gearheads. If you’re into trucks and motors, then this is for you. It’s really cool because the kids can come out, and the pits for the monster trucks are open so they can meet the drivers and see the trucks up close at any time during the day before the competition starts. We have autograph sessions after every show.”
The show draws a lot of people to the fairgrounds.
“Over the three days it is about 35,000 people and about 2,000 pickup trucks,” Boden said.
The jamboree fills up the entire fairgrounds.
Events include truck racing and other contests, a vendor show, monster truck rides ($10), Specialty Equipment Market Association’s Young Guns competition and more.
