The American-style fun doesn’t end with the Leyland Festival on Saturday.

The British Commercial Vehicle Museum, whose vintage motors are at the heart of the festival procession, carries on the festivities into the next day with their American Roadshow on Sunday June 16.

On show will be all their star parade exhibits, including the four monster American “Big Rig” trucks (like the one pictured right) and lots of wonderful US vintage vehicles.

And visitors can also enjoy some live country and western music from local heroes, Tennessee Jack.

Big truck manufacturer DAF will have their information trailer at the event. And there will be glamorous outfits galore - all on the same American theme!

The Museum opens at 12noon on Saturday after the parade but returns to normal opening hours from 10am to 4,30pm on Sunday.
