Twin Cities Club puts on 2nd Show!
Posted August 8, 2021
For the first time ever, the Twin Cities Volkswagen Club will have two shows in one year. The popular 35th Annual Bug-In Event at Luther Westside Volkswagen was held in June. However, if you missed the June show, you'll get a second chance this year. Luther Burnsville Volkswagen will host an All Volkswagen show on Sunday, September 12. from 9:00 - 1:00. All Volkswagen's of interest are welcome! This show will follow a Top 20 no-class format with registered car owners voting for their favorites. The show is free for show cars and spectators! Food and beverages will be available. This is another opportunity for car fun before we start thinking about that "cold" time of the year!
