This is the year and the event for all truck driving enthusiasts to be part of a Guinness World Record. Volga City is aiming for 2,018 trucks to cruise to the Guinness World Record August 25, 2018. The current record is held by Germany. They estimate the audience in Volga City, Iowa, to be 8,000 to 10,000 for this exciting special event.

Volga City has a fun-filled day of activities planned out for all the truck cruising friends. You can start your day off with a delicious breakfast at 7:00 A.M. thanks to the Volga City Study Club.
