The summer has come and gone but that doesn't mean we can't get out and enjoy some exciting events that make their way to the Empire State. One of the loudest and most powerful events in the Nation will roll in to New York State in 2023.

Some of the best memories I have as a kid are of going to see Disney on Ice or the Shrine Circus, wrestling and the monster trucks! The big trucks that you watched on TV or online as a kid will be roaring in at least two cities in New York State.

Monster Jam is going to be held in Albany March 11-12 and the JMA Wireless Dome on Saturday, April 8th!

Among the trucks that are expected to be at the show are Max D, Soldier Fortune, and Grave Digger. There will also be a pit party on the day of the event from two-30 p-m until five-30 p-m. Tickets go on sale to the general public this coming Tuesday and they can be purchased online.

LOOK: Stunning vintage photos capture the beauty of America's national parks

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
