This past weekend at the Pacific Coliseum we had the pleasure of hosting the Monster Jam – Triple Threat Series! We had 8 Monster Truck drivers competing in 3 different events for the Triple Threat title. The Monster Trucks that tore up the Pacific Coliseum were: Monster Mutt Dalmatian, Grave Digger, N.E.A, Mohawk Warrior, Scooby-Doo, Max-D, El Toro Loco and Zombie!
In preparation for Monster Jam we had over 100 dump truck loads of soil loaded into the Pacific Coliseum. A total of 1200 cubic meters of soil, weighing a massive 1800 tons was needed to cover and protect the Coliseum floor. 1 Excavator, 1 Bull-dozer, 1 Front end loader and 2 bobcats were used to move the soil and build the jumps for this amazing event! Check out the time-lapse video below of the soil being loaded into the Coliseum!
Prior to the 1:00pm show on Saturday, guests were invited to come see the trucks and meet the drivers during the Pit Pass Party! We had over 2500 people attend the Pit Pass Party which made it one of the largest arena Pit Pass Party events! Take a look at the Pit Pass Party time-lapse video below!
Around the globe, millions of people, businesses and landmarks set aside an hour to host events, switch off their lights, and make noise to #ChangeClimateChange. The Pacific National Exhibition is proud to join in on this endeavor and we encourage each and every one of you to do your part.
On March 25, 2017 from 8:30pm to 9:30pm the PNE will be going DARK! Lights will be turned off, computers will be powered down and any electronic devices not being used will be unplugged!
