Volksfest 32 Wrap Up
By Mark and Debi Garrett
Volksfest 32 is in the books, and from all the feedback (both at the show
yesterday) and on social media today, it was another rousing success.
While the show car count was down from previous years likely due to the
weather forecast predicting rain and severe weather, it never materialized at the
show site. The vender area was packed, and the spectator flow was steady
throughout the day.
The only negative comments were related to the lack of spectator parking
due to the previous main spectator area being readied for a building project. We
found this out TWO WEEKS before the show, so there was really no time to come
up with another plan.
We moved the awards ceremony back to 3pm to get everyone on the road
safely ahead of any bad weather. Checks were presented to God's Hygiene,
Helping Hands Clinic and Pedal for Pete.
And to wrap things up, we announced that Volksfest 33 will be moving to an
exciting NEW LOCATION for 2024! Be sure to watch the COVVC website and
Facebook page for the big announcement soon.
A big thanks to all of the fantastic COVVC volunteers that make Volksfest
possible. And a big shout out to the loyal show car owners, venders and spectators
that make the show what it is today. Enjoy a few pictures from the show, and now
it's time to rest!
