GET ready to get dirty, the monster trucks are headed our way.

The assault vehicles which literally weigh tonnes, will be a special event of the upcoming Fraser Coast Show to celebrate its 140th year.

Fraser Coast Show Society executive officer Rhonda McDonald said this year was going to be massive.

"This year is akin to Ekka and it will be exceptional," she said.

It's been a few years since the trucks rolled into town, but Ms McDonald was sure Fraser Coast residents were eager to see them again.

"We've had lots of likes on Facebook for this event and I think the locals are ready for it," she said.

"Aussie Thunda" will be joined by monster truck "Tassie Devil" and both will be a sight to behold in Maryborough and Hervey Bay soon.

Ms McDonald said the trucks were organised to feature at the Nissan dealerships in both Maryborough and Hervey Bay during the week.

Some children, excited at the return of the mammoth vehicles, may even be lucky enough to see them at their school.

The show, now only two weeks away, will have a variety of special demonstrations, Ms McDonald said.

This year's line-up includes a static demonstration of war memorabilia in salute to the Anzacs and an Army camp with historical infantry vehicles on display.

Show favourites including agricultural events such as the stud cattle competition, fruit and vegetables and the pigeons would also go ahead as planned.

While a variety of different pavilions and displays will be at the show, monster trucks are a huge drawcard.

During the show, the trucks will delight the audience with their manoeuvres over show cars in the centre ring.

A special prize of a monster truck ride will be raffled at the show.
