Monster Nation will rumble back into Ford Arena with 1,800 tons of dirt and mashed metal on Feb. 17 – 19. What has become the premier monster truck event in the area promises to continue wowing fans with six 10,000 pound machines and much, much more jam packed into two hours of high flying horsepower. Monster Nation Monster Trucks will be on display at various locations around Beaumont this week
The legendary BIGFOOT will be making a visit to St. Anne’s Catholic School on Friday, Feb. 18 at 9 am. St. Anne’s students will get to see the newly designed Bigfoot Monster Truck up close and meet the world champion BIGFOOT Driver, Dan Runte.
Ms. Amy Delgado, Principal of St Anne Catholic School in Beaumont, arranged for the visit as a reward for the St. Anne Students. “The students are SO excited to be having “Bigfoot” monster visit our school. It’s a Good Life at St. Anne; we have lots of fun here. We have a high Standard of Achievement Excellence, and we are very excited to be able to bring the Monster Truck here for the students.
