If nothing sounds better to you than the roar of a monster truck crunching steel, then Monsters on the Beach will have you in awe. Each May, Charles Barker Toyota Scion hosts Monsters on the Beach.
This family event takes place in a course built right on the beach at 6th Street with bleachers overlooking from the boardwalk and waves crashing in the background – that is if you can hear them over the roar of the massive monster trucks. Sand dunes and junk cars make the course fast and fun for drivers and spectators alike. Past monster trucks to visit the beach have including Gunslinger, Stone Crusher, Grave Digger, Virginia Giant, Megasaurus.
Each year a different famous monster trucks descend on the beach offers fun and excitement as well as monster truck rides. These rides are a big hit with children of all ages (including the young at heart) and are offered on a smaller track built for this attraction. Rides are offered on the beach at 4th Street throughout the weekend and weeknights of the event.
If you have your own truck you love and want to show off, local truck owners are encouraged to enter the Tough 4x4 Competition and the Eastern Truck & Accessories Show & Shine. These events feature local drivers on the same track used by the monster trucks. The Eastern Truck & Accessories Show & Shine is a judged truck show competition offering awards to the best trucks.
Truck enthusiasts will also enjoy the merchandise offered by local and regional off-road truck shops and monster truck drivers also offer their own merchandise after each show, including autograph sessions.
All events are RAIN OR SHINE.
