The second weekend of August becomes action-packed with the Jeep Fest in town.
The three-day third edition of the Jeep Festival started with a bang on 9th August 2019 with a Jeep Off-Road Course welcome party where proud owners of jeeps showcased their driving skills by running the vehicles on a muddy and uneven course in noon, and the Kick-Off concert featuring Dennis DeYoung and Music of Styx later in the evening soothed visitors’ fatigue from the day.
The fest is celebrated every year since 2016 to commemorate the decades of the union of Jeep with the city Toledo where several products of the company manufactured in the city are put on display. The festival that has taken the streets of Toledo from this Friday has Jeeps from all over the country up for showcase to form the colossal magnificent urban Jeep festival. The fest that was an unforeseen hit in its 1st year with approximately 40,000 people coming down to Toledo to be a part of the mammoth celebration is expecting to attract an estimated 75,000 this time.
The committee behind the event aims at making it one of the largest festivals of America by giving an insight into the future of Jeep and highlighting the new-to-market ‘Gladiator pickup truck’ along with proudly presenting the heritage of the city associated with the Jeep.
The fest attracts visitors from all over the parts from every age group, so it’s not only about the multifarious automobile products, but has little something for everyone’s entertainment and interest. There is Kid’s Zone by Imagination station and Family Zone by Hensville Park; both of these will hold several activities for the children and full families, a parade through downtown Toledo, an All-Jeep Exhibit at the SeaGate Convention Centre forms a part, too. And families will get to munch the meals during the fest overlooking the beautiful riverfront from Monroe St to Adam St.
By the updates received on the planning, it can be confidently stated that this Jeep Festival 2019 is well on its way to becoming the largest festival in Toledo, something that every visitor of the fest will always remember.
