Watch the inaugural Kenworth truck parade at Ohio manufacturing plant


This year marked the first ever Kenworth Truck Parade featuring dozens of new, classic and customized Kenworth trucks.

The parade recently took place in downtown Chillicothe, Ohio, and was hosted by members of the Kenworth Chillicothe plant to raise money for United Way of Ross County.

The parade featured more than 50 trucks, with some models dating back as far as 1967, driven by truckers from 28 states and Canada.

“Our first Kenworth truck parade here in Chillicothe was a lot of fun. Thanks to all the drivers — many of whom spent vacation time to travel here to participate and show off their rigs — for such a great event,” said Jack Schmitt, Kenworth Chillicothe assistant plant manager. “Through this parade, we were able to generate a nice donation to United Way of Ross County, which will help support community programs in our local area. We’re already looking forward to next year’s parade in celebration of Kenworth’s 100-year anniversary.”
