About This Event
Local families are invited out to the mall’s north parking lot from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to experience a variety of interactive and engaging activities. The free, one-night event is expected to draw upwards of 3,000 community members.
Throughout the evening, children will have the unique opportunity to see, touch and explore a variety of larger-than-life vehicles. From race cars to semi-trucks, there’s something for everyone at this year’s Big Rig Night.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Big Rig Night back to Battlefield Mall and continue our commitment of providing local families with unforgettable experiences that also support our community,” said Amanda Estes, Director of Marketing and Business Development at Battlefield Mall. “We recognize how much the Springfield community enjoys Big Rig Night and we’re delighted to add new event elements for families to experience this year, including food truck fare, live entertainment and goodie bags, while supplies last.”
In addition to the wide variety of trucks, cars and utility vehicles, there will be tons of engaging activities for children of all ages, including a balloon twisting artist, a face-painter, bounce houses and more. Attendees will also enjoy great music all evening, thanks to Springfield’s premier party rock band, Gotcha’ Covered. New this year, the first 500 families to register at the Battlefield Mall tent will receive a goodie bag.
On top of the family-friendly activities, Big Rig Night will also host multiple local food trucks including community-favorites like Davalon, London Calling, Sno Ballz and Twisted Mikes. In addition, attendees in search of a refreshing drink are encouraged to stop by the Ozarks Coca-Cola Dr. Pepper Bottling Company location for a complimentary beverage sample, while supplies last.

• Trash Trucks
