If you want to watch these 10,000-pound beasts go HAM with their 1,500-horsepower engines, then Monster Spectacular 2022 is the place to do it.
According to evenko, the event promoter, 12 of the world's best monster trucks will be competing on an all-new track. The event features side-by-side races, freestyle motocross, ATV & SXS races, and a backflip contest.
The event was initially set to take place on November 13, but it has been postponed until April 9 due to public health restrictions.
If you already have a ticket, hold onto it because it'll still be valid. If you don't, a spokesperson told MTL Blog there are still more tickets available.
Doors open at 5 p.m. for a pit party where you can meet the drivers and get photos with the monster trucks.

A viral video taken at Montreal's Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery and posted to Facebook on Monday shows long, uncut grass, weeds, and most disturbingly of all, disinterred human remains.
In the video, since deleted on Facebook but shared elsewhere on social media, Montrealer Pierre Mainville Proïetti says he was visiting his grandfather's grave when he found that a groundhog had burrowed into the neighbouring gravesite and dug up several bones, including parts of a skull.
