From the official website here is their history:
'The year was 1996.
Alexandra is a timber town.
Timber towns are sleepy in winter.
A group of local businessmen are lamenting about how quiet it is and how few people are in town.
So the next year, 1997, there were 20 log trucks in Grant Street on the Sunday of the long weekend and about 200 people showed up to inspect them.
It has just grown from there.
Alexandra now hosts over 100 trucks of all descriptions, log trucks, tippers, vintage and tow trucks.
The second biggest wood chop event in the state with over 50 axe men.
And a great line up of bands still playing on the back of a truck in the main street.
By 2009 the crowd has swollen to 12,000 and for a number of local community groups it is their biggest fund raiser of the year.
