A Better Connection than WIFi: Family AutoFest
Returns to Wellington Village Park
The Wellington Family AutoFest rides back into Village Park on Pierson Road Sunday morning October 2nd from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm. in the scenic Village Park at 11700 Pierson Road marking the beginning of a monthly charitable event.
The family friendly event combines a traditional car show showcasing all types and models of vehicles with a Sunday morning outing for family, friends, and groups including activities, music, and food trucks.
The October event features a judged vehicle competition boasting over 20 trophies and an exhibit of first responder vehicles with proceeds benefitting veterans causes including Unified Dream, a local veteran’s group.
Unified Dream Founder, CEO and former Marine Jacob Hampu said: “Our partnership on the AutoFest is a great opportunity for our veterans and their families. We will be there with an interactive disc golf exhibit which was very successful in the June AutoFest. We appreciate the partnership with the Rotary Club in building awareness and providing personal, as well as financial support to our members.”
Unified Dream is hosting its own fundraiser, a Disc Golf Tournament on November 12th in Royal Palm Beach where anyone can participate. See their website www.unifieddream.org for further information.
Rotary Club President Tiffany Rodriguez noted: “The AutoFest is a project of the Rotary Club of Wellington. We call it “a better connection than WIFI”. The AutoFest is a way for car enthusiasts, family, friends and neighbors to enjoy the outdoors on a Sunday morning…and you don’t need a show vehicle to participate.”
“Within the event, we will have the AutoFest Village with food trucks from Gourmet Truck Expo plus exhibitions by Cox Science Museum, the disc golf station by Unified Dream and more” said committee member Randy Pfeiffer.
For Wellington residents, the AutoFest can be accessed by golf cart under new Village regulations.
Entry for vehicles participating in a judged contest will be $20; all other show vehicles will be $10. Non-show vehicles can participate too with a VIP area for families and groups with an $10 entry fee per vehicle. Free parking also available.
