Eau Claire, WI - The 5th Annual Eau Claire Big Rig Truck & Tractor Show brings together people of all ages and gives them an opportunity to see the world of trucking.  The show is free to the public and is held at the Chippewa Valley Technical College (617 W.

Some of the country's top show trucks will be on display. Customized interiors, unique light displays, beautiful murals, brilliant chrome work and much more will be showcased at this event.
