Many of us have driven past, or at least heard of the World's largest truck stop. I have stopped there many different times. Mostly to grab food, or just to see what was new, but this weekend is a great time to stop by for your first time or the hundredth time to see the Walcott Truckers Jamboree!

The Walcott Truckers Jamboree is a 3-day, family-friendly event featuring a wide variety of exhibits, contests, live music, and more!  Admission is free, and while this event welcomes all truckers it also welcomes anyone who wants to take a look and enjoy the fun!

Iowa 80 is already getting ready for the awesome events, and contests on their Facebook page,


These events offer something for everyone and are spread out amongst multiple days. So if you can only make it one day, you'll still find plenty of great activities. The fun kicks off on July 8th, this Thursday, and runs until July 10th.
