Year after year they return to add a dash of colour to the Esplanade and good spirit a few days after Saint-Valentine’s day. In the heart of winter these ‘Beetle Lovers’ come to celebrate love and happiness.
Sunday 16th February, for the 12th consecutive year, near on 300 Bugs, Beetles and their big brother, the Combi will brighten up the Esplanade in front of the Autoworld museum. Of all generations (the oldest presently registered dates from 1953!), of all eras and … of all colours.
Year upon year it’s that same infatuation that brings their owners together, dying to enjoy a day out filled with the spirit of freedom, music and togetherness this small car inspires!
The participating cars are awaited as from 11.00hrs and will take the start at 14.00hrs for a run of approximately one hour. Come and join in the party with their owners!
Should you wish to admire them along the route they will be tacking in the main boulevards (Louis Schmidt, Général Jacques) up to the Bois de la Cambre, with a return run via the Boulevard du Souverain, with a small detour towards the Africa Museum in Tervuren and return via the royal route.The cars will be back at Autoworld around 15.00hrs -1530hrs.
