The first weekend in April can only mean one thing: It's time for the Oklahoma Spring Bash. For the last 16 years, the men and women of Sweet Temptationz have been putting on this show that kicks off the show season for a lot of Midwest minitruckers. With tons to do, this event keeps everyone on their toes all weekend long. The only bad thing was it only goes on for three days, and it left us yearning for more. But, even when we thought the show was over on Saturday, we still had the after party to attend. By the end of the weekend, it was easy to say that this show's sweet 16 was one of the best.
