Protect hearing at monster truck show

Part of the fun of Monster Truck Nationals is that they are loud, but you should also protect yourself and your family if you are attending this Saturday at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Everyone going should have either earplugs or earmuffs, particularly children. Earplugs are the in-the-ear type that you can buy inexpensively at any pharmacy. Earmuffs fit over your entire ear and look like big headphones. You can purchase earmuffs at sporting goods stores, and muffs are often easier for kids to use.

With either plugs or muffs, you will have hearing protection so you can fully enjoy the show and not worry about your ears ringing during or after. I know I will bring some to protect my family.

Enjoy the show!
