Summer may be winding down with fall around the corner, but there are still plenty of exciting events here at Smith Mountain Lake! If you haven’t had a chance to make it out to the beach this summer The Virginia Corvette Club is bringing a mini-vacation to your own back yard. On August 20th at Parkway Marina there will be an array of events including music, dancing, wine, micro brewed beer, food and product vendors as well as live beach music by The Fantastic Shakers and the Virginia Corvette Club car show. All of this is set to the scenic backdrop of Smith Mountain Lake and views of the sunset, with the event going on from 4:00-9:00 pm.
The Corvette Display features Corvettes on showcase along the shores of the lake. The display also has people’s choice voting by all attendees, with trophies awarded. The Fantastic Shakers Band members also select a Corvette to ride up to the Pavilion as their entrance to the event.
If you’re interested in entering your car into the show, the entry fee is only $10 per Corvette, allowing up to 2 people in the car. Entry fees are due by August 16th, and upon paying the entry fee you will receive a corvette event badge which serves as your ticket into the event. Corvettes must be parked by 3:00 pm. Awards are presented during the band’s last break (around 8:00 pm).
If you are interested in event tickets without entering the car show, the cost is $20.00 in advance and $25.00 at the gate. The car show and other activities are located at Parkway Marina at 16918 Smith Mountain Lake Parkway in Huddleston. Consider this an affordable vacation and a break from your hectic schedule and come out to enjoy yourself with family and friends before the summer ends!For more information about this event, call 540-586-9401.
