The Bristol Volksfest Was A Holiday To Remember
You will agree with me that one of the most popular Volkswagen event; which showcases the amazing abilities of the sports car models; GTIs Golfs et al; then it is the annual Bristol Volksfest. This takes starts from Fridays through to Sunday when the main event of racing takes place.
The weekend is usually a weekend like no other. Anyway, that was the case when I attended the 2011 event. I remember vividly how I had run out of ideas of holidaying through that summer. I was constrained by financial issues. Therefore, I won’t be at a position to take my family for holiday. One day, while discussing my predicament with a co-worker; she suggested that the Bristol Volksfest was worth a shot.
Nonetheless, I never gave much contemplation into the suggestion because to me it sounded absurd. I didn’t want to conceive how my wife and son would conceive if I told them that I planned to spend a weekend with them at the race course. Moreover, I knew that my wife never liked outdoor events involving racing and she wouldn’t appreciate my suggestions.
However, I was terribly wrong. When I explained to her my intentions; she became overwhelmed. Apparently, she had figured out that I was much pressurized by lack of cash. But I had gone to an extent of not disappointing our son. She felt that it was worthy a shot
The Amazing Bristol Volksfest Camping Event
That’s how we found our way to the annual camping event of Bristol Volksfest at Washingpool Farm, BS35 5RE Bristol, United Kingdom. When we got there that Friday evening; I lamented why I had not hired a VW myself because the damn sports cars were all over the place.
However, we booked in at a nearby motel and then purchased our entry tickets. We decided to stroll around that day as we viewed the street art displays; as well as the retro BMX exhibition; where we spend a considerable amount of time watching the splendor of the BMXers. There were hordes of people all over the place.
Be that as it may, we had some casual chat with a few. However, I must admit how enthusiastic they were; along with how much they loved an event that I had never given a thought of. There were some who claimed to have been in the event for more than five times. That assured me that it must be fantastic and full of fun.
What we did that following evening
That evening we attended a live band entertainment; which featured several northern soul as well as Motown music. We had fun dancing to the classic souls; which features some old moves nostalgic of my college days when we used to sneak from college to go to venues; where northern soul was playing weekend. I must admit that it was really fun. Not only did my wife enjoy. But my 9 year old son.
Moreover, we didn’t realize how time had run fast until we were told that it was time to call it a day; and have some rest till the next day.
The next day was too exceptional just like our first. But the last day on Sunday climaxed our little adventure as we spend the day cheering the Volksmania; as well as their tricks and wrecks. Everything about them was entertaining. They made me revisit my decision of buying a VW; which I had earlier disregarded. I must admit that if there is one event that you can really enjoy yourself even on a tight budget; then try this volksfest.
