Hong Kong – the first-ever Volkswagen Oktoberfest was held with great success in celebrating Volkswagen’s 80th anniversary on 22 October. Over 1,000 car lovers together with their kids participated in the carnival at Whitehead Barbecue. Many have also brought their pet dogs to share the happiness.
At the event, participants were able to experience off-road with the Tiguan2 and Touareg guided by celebrity off-road specialist Mr. Victor Ma. This “Off-road Experience” zone was the most popular activity with all the sessions fully booked quickly.
Volkswagen classic car showcase was another highlight of the day. Greatly supported by various Volkswagen car fan clubs, there were 17 precious Volkswagen classic cars in display including the Golf GTI Mk1-3, Type 1 Beetle, Type 2 microbus and Karmann Ghia, etc.
Many participants went to test drive the latest Volkswagen models and learn drones navigation from expert trainers (by RC Logger); and kids had great time in the family-friendly mini-game zone and the pet interaction zone from Society for Abandoned Animals Limited (SAA). All the registration fees collected for Volkswagen Oktoberfest were donated to the SAA.
