A festival of fire is on its way to put on an explosive display of action-packed family fun.
The Monster Festival of Fire has a line up of monster trucks, fireworks and flame throwing jets, and one man getting among all the action is Clive Featherby.
Mr Featherby has been in the industry of fireworks displays and monster truck driving for years and said this weekend's show is set to impress.
"We’re really hoping it’ll be a strong turnout, around the 4000-6000 mark, that’s normally what these shows attract," he said.
While it isn't the first time Wagga has enjoyed the monster trucks, it is the first Festival of Fire for the city.
"This show isn’t just about the monster trucks though, it’s all about fire, fireworks with loads of students and even international fireworks names, and then things like the jet car, demolition derby, crane drops, and of course the monster trucks," Mr Featherby said.
The entertainment guru said the fireworks display will be unlike anything Wagga has seen before.
"I’m looking forward to the fireworks side of things most, I used to do the fireworks at the Wagga show maybe twelve years ago and this is honestly probably a dozen times bigger than any that show ever had, so the display is really going to shock people," he said.
Driving alongside the festival team is Australia's Number 1 Monster Truck Driver, Troy Garcia.
"I’m going to be driving The Rock monster truck on the night up against the Outback Thunda truck, and we have the Captain Koala truck as well," Mr Garcia said.
This isn't the driver's first time in Wagga, and Mr Garcia told The Daily Advertiser the regional communities make the best crowds.
"I was here in Wagga a long time ago, maybe six or eight years ago now, and the smaller towns are a lot more welcoming - you can do the major cities and get lost in the number of people, so I really do enjoy doing towns like Wagga, it’s a lot more rewarding.
"I’m Australia’s longest standing driver and have the most drives under my belt, but competition in the industry here is nowhere near as fierce as in the states.
"This is a show after all, it’s about fun and a lot more light-hearted, you can relax, and sometimes when you’re relaxed, things happen better for you."
The Monster Festival of Fire will be held Saturday at Wagga Showgrounds, kicking off at 5pm.
