We did it. We went to the Monster Jam event in the Pacific Coliseum on Friday night and you know what, it was actually a really, really fun family event.
Sure there were more guys with beards and neck tattoos than I’ve ever seen in one place, but there were also tons of families there as well. There were even some families with dads with beards and neck tattoos. There were also many moms and dads there with little boys and girls. And they were all having fun!
One thing I found really cool was the fact that the people running the show and the men and women in the show all know they are in the entertainment business and they all worked really hard at being entertaining.
After the show was over all the drivers set up at tables in the lobby of the Coliseum to greet any and every fan who wanted to say hi and get an autograph.
And if you were like me, and you wanted a picture of your kid with the driver of the Wildflower monster truck, the drivers were more than happy to smile and pose for a photo. Honestly, they were a class act!
I think that Sunday is the final day for the show in Vancouver. If you get a chance, check out the show. It is a lot of fun. Oh, if you do go…take hearing protection!
