One of the biggest truck shows of the year went down last weekend as thousands of fans, custom trucks, and vendors made their trek to Texas for the 10th annual Lone Star Throwdown. Touted as the “World’s Best Truck Show,” Conroe, TX, was the place to be seen during the weekend of February 25th-27th, held at the Lone Star Expo Center & Montgomery County Fairgrounds.
Commonly thought of as a season kickoff for the custom show circuit, the weekend proved that show season was officially back despite being a bit off due to the pandemic. Builders and enthusiasts from across the country showed up to represent their latest and greatest creations. Even despite the wet, cold and gloomy weather, the show was still packed with visitors throughout the weekend looking to experience one of the most notable truck shows in the nation. And of course, only the best of the best took home the trophies and a year’s worth of bragging rights.
In addition to unique builds and rides, fans were treated to several exhibitions and events, including the popular cruising loop that allows for a steady parade of eye candy on four wheels. Vendors also came out to show off their newest gear and offerings, while tons of good food and music topped off the weekend’s festivities.
