2015 Pemberton 4x4 Rally
A Pemberton tradition the Pemberton 4x4 Rally is set to return this weekend June 6 & 7, 2015. Think of it as an ultra-marathon for supped up trucks. Forty plus upgraded 4x4 trucks compete in 4 events over two days to see who can outlast, outwit and push their truck to the limits. This year's event takes place at the Green River Rally Grounds, located half way between Pemberton and Whistler.
This event is always a rip-roaring good time! Huge crowds come out to spend an affordable day in the sun taking in the sights and sounds of the amazing trucks.
Patrons can choose between two viewing areas including the family area and the beer gardens. Adjacent to the family area is the food stand, serving up delicious greasy eats all day. There's also a merchandise tent where you can pick up 4x4 hats and t-shirts.
Entry into the event is only $10. Please note: this is a cash only site make sure to bring enough money to cover all your expenses (entry, food, beverages, merchandise).
