Colombo, Wednesday 07th June 2023: Just like there’s a special bond between every dad and his child, Dads also have a unique connection to their cars. Celebrating these generational bonds, Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo collaborates with the VW Beetle Owner’s Club this Father’s Day to bring a brunch fit for a king. Dad, VWs, and a Cook-Off will be held on Sunday 18th June 2023 from 11am onwards at the Waterside Marquee, Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo.

The VW Beetle Owners’ Club was formed by a group of owners and enthusiasts in 1996. At present the membership stands at over two hundred and fifty and the number continues to grow with membership of both young and old who come together at annual events held by the Club.

The exciting line-up of events will kick start with the Beetle Parade flagged off from the Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo car park at 11am for a drive of pride around the city. The VW Beetle Owner’s Club will also commemorate World VW Day that falls on 22nd June every year. More than 50-75 carefully preserved VW classics and more recent classics are expected to join the parade.

A tired and hungry bunch of VW owners and families will descend upon the Waterside Marquee only to be welcomed by a carefully curated selection of food and beverages. What’s more dads who love to cook as much as they love to drive, can team up with a son and daughter and be one of the eight teams in an exciting cook-off competition. Winners of the cook-off will receive exciting prizes courtesy of the VW Beetle Owner’s Club and the Official Radio Partner for the event Legends 96.6
