Muncie, IN – United Way of Delaware and Madison counties are back again this year with the action-packed 4th Annual United Way Human Truck Pull, happening Sat., Aug. 5, 2017 at the Anderson Municipal Airport. The Annual Human Truck Pull is free for all, though donations will be accepted at the door. Donations are strategically invested in improving thousands of lives throughout East Central Indiana.
The opening ceremony begins at 10 a.m. and will be followed by the main event. You and your family won’t want to miss this day full of nail-biting truck pulls, as more than 16 teams face off to pull a 33,000-pound semi with a 53-foot trailer 125 feet as fast as they can. The exciting, competitive atmosphere will have spectators on the edge of their seats cheering for their favorite team!
The event boasts an exciting kids’ area, sure to keep the children entertained all day. They’ll have the opportunity to romp around two bounce houses, play fun games and activities, and even participate in a free kids’ truck pull competition (with parent consent)!
Food will be available throughout the day, starting with coffee and breakfast items, followed by pulled pork BBQ sandwiches and free ice cream.
An awards ceremony will be held following the final pull of the day. At this concluding ceremony, prizes will be awarded to winning teams for Fastest Team Overall, Fastest Team (Coed and Men’s), and Most Money Raised. Bragging rights are included with every award!
All activities will take place at the Anderson Municipal Airport, located at 282 Airport Road in Anderson, Ind. The airport is a 25-minute drive from downtown Muncie.
