Up to 350 trucks are expected to be attending the 2014 Brisbane Convoy for Kids this year, which will be travelling towards the Redcliffe Showgrounds. Once there, a full day/night of food, drink and entertainment awaits.

Each year the convoy raises money for various nominated organizations, and this year the beneficiaries will be Redcliffe Special School and Beenleigh Special School. Patrons are encouraged to donate items to help raise money via the various auctions that will be held.

Other events include a classic ‘truck pull’ contest, as well as performances from a variety of Australian country music artists.
