Volkswagen lovers in the hundreds turned out to see their favorites at the Space Coast VW Festival on Sunday, October 18, 2015 at the David R. Schechter Community Center in Satellite Beach. From dune buggies to Karmann Ghia’s, bugs to vans, original to custom restorations, no VW enthusiast went home disappointed.
The show included entertainment and vendors, as well. Local band Gemini provided live music, and later in the evening, the Brevard Hawaiian Dancers out of Satellite Beach provided an entertaining set following the awards ceremony. Several vendors selling VW Parts were on hand, as well as food and craft vendors selling everything from homemade ice cream sandwiches to painted terracotta suns and handcrafted bath and body products, plus a few food trucks were on hand to provide delicious eats.
Organizers of the event Brenda and Phillip Cline say they have already picked out a theme for next year’s show. However, they would not let on what that was, instead stating that you would just need to attend the event next year to find out for yourself. All proceeds benefit the Brevard Zoo’s Oyster Restoration Project, which works to restore oysters back into the Indian River Lagoon in order to improve the water quality and prevent erosion in one of the most biologically diverse estuaries in North America.
