Mountain bike stunt shows, dog performances among entertainment at Carlisle Truck Nationals

Carlisle/West Shore

CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) — More than one thousand trucks are on display at the 2020 Carlisle Truck Nationals at the Carlisle Fairgrounds.

The show runs Friday and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“The truck show is the type of event where you can literally see in real life the trucks that were toys when you were kids,” said Mike Garland of Carlisle Events. “So you played with the Matchbox cars. You played with the Hot Wheels. Your kids do the same thing now, and you can come out and you can see them.”

Organizers ask you to wear a mask when you enter the fairgrounds and whenever social distancing isn’t possible.

There are extra hand sanitizing stations throughout the 82-acre facility.

“We have a monster truck on display where folks can get pictures taken,” said Garland. “We also have an Optimus Prime replica rig that will be on display Saturday, so for folks that are Transformers fans you can see that.”

Plus, there are mountain biking stunt shows and multiple performances by the world champion Disc-Connected K9 frisbee dog team.

“What we have is a collection of the best frisbee dogs on the planet,” said Lawrence Frederick of Disc-Connected K9. “The tricks that they do are all performed to music. It’s a combination of gymnastics and dancing with dogs and frisbees.”

Nine dogs do routines in half hour shows.

Tickets to the Carlisle Truck Nationals are $15 for the day and $25 for the weekend. Kids 12 and under get in free.
