Join us for a crushing good time on Saturday, February 3, 2024, as we celebrate the final days of the temporary exhibit, Evolution of BIGFOOT. The original BIGFOOT began as a 1974 Ford F-250 pickup that was modified by its owner, Bob Chandler, beginning in 1975. In 1979, Chandler replaced the under assembly of the truck with one from a military-surplus top loader featuring four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering that used 48-inch (120 cm) tires. This exhibit explores the evolution of the phenomenon that is BIGFOOT with BIGFOOT #1, BIGFOOT #8, and BIGFOOT #20. In addition, the 1987 Ford BIGFOOT Cruiser F-250 4×4, BIGFOOT Blue is on display.

  • BIGFOOT #1 “The Original Monster Truck” (On Loan from BIGFOOT 4×4, Inc.)
  • BIGFOOT #8 “First CAD-designed Monster Truck” (On Loan from BIGFOOT 4×4, Inc.)
  • BIGFOOT #20 “First and only electric Monster Truck” (On Loan from BIGFOOT 4×4, Inc.)
  • 1987 Ford BIGFOOT Cruiser F-250 4X4 ((On Loan from BIGFOOT 4×4, Inc.)

Starting at 10:30 am, and again at 11:30 am, and 1:30 pm, kids are invited to chat with Ms. Mary as she shares interesting details about the BIGFOOT vehicles. Following the mini highlights tour, guests will be invited into the Presentation Theatre to see a video clip showing how Bigfoot made his grand entrance into the building.

But the fun doesn’t end there. From 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, kids are invited into the private dining room to color. When the kiddos are ready to fuel up, don’t forget to visit the Savoy Café for lunch. The kids’ lunch options are $5, and grown-ups can choose to from a selection of sandwiches and salads. Before leaving, those 12 and under are invited to stop by for a complimentary monster truck themed cookie* and sticker*. So, bring out the kiddos for a fun-filled time as we prepare to say goodbye to BIGFOOT!

*While supplies last.
