Sittin' Pretti Has An Excellent Reputation For Throwing An Awesome One-Day Show, Not To Mention Having Some Badass Mini Trucks.
With so much going on in the Northwest minitruck scene, we decided to go up again this year and check out all the new and exciting trucks.
The show wasn't a huge three-day show that brought out 500-plus vehicles, but it did represent big, with the minitruck crowd bringing out more than 170 minis. It seems that in the North, there's a particular loyalty to minitrucks, and the owners work on them every winter to bring out something different each time the show season comes around. Sittin' Pretti also knows what it takes to keep the show-goers entertained. The club had a variety of cool games and contests, including the tricycle races, and our favorite, the bubblegum blow-off. It was fun not only to participate, but also to watch, as people stuffed six feet of gum in their mouths and try to chew it enough to blow a bubble.
We were having so much fun checking out all the vendors and events and just hangin' out that we almost didn't have enough time to get around the showgrounds.
