The Magnolia Region Porsche Club of America will feature a corral of 15 to 20 newer Porsches shown by their owners.
The inaugural Euro Fest in 2009 drew an estimated 10,000 to 14,000 spectators who were able to view the autos and motorcycles up close as well as take unlimited photos. Spectators and autos came from five states to see this one of a kind collection, from five different countries, which has become a most successful regional event. On display were Mercedes Benz, Ferrari, Alfa Romero, Jaguar, Austin Healy, MG, Volvo, Land Rover, Maserati, Rover, Morgan, Volkswagen, Rolls Royce, Aston Martin, BMW, and Porsche. Triumph and BSA motorcycles were also shown. All of these and more are expected for viewing this year and will be positioned on the walk ways throughout the Renaissance Center, allowing for casual walk along viewing.
The Euro Fest will kick off with a march of Mississippi’s own Scottish Highland “Father of Waters,” Bagpipe and Drum Corps. Food vendors will be on hand selling pasta, pizza, fish and chips, Italian Sausage, bratwurst, Panini sandwiches, and other European foods.
A Swedish section will be located outside of Barnes & Noble Bookstore at Renaissance throughout the auto show. Paul Moak Volvo, Mississippi’s exclusive Volvo retailer, will have new Volvo vehicles on display and available for test drives and demonstrations including the Volvo XC90, Volvo XC60, Volvo C70, and Volvo C30.
The headliner of the Paul Moak Volvo display will be the all-new 2011 Volvo S60 sedan, recently released to the U.S. from Sweden. The S60 features a world’s first in automotive safety technology: Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake. The vehicle can detect a pedestrian moving into the path of the vehicle, warn the driver, automatically brake, and bring the S60 to a complete stop at speeds less than 22 mph. Last year 4,700 pedestrians were killed in motor vehicle accident in the US. Half of these fatal accidents occurred at speeds of less than 16 mph. The Volvo brand is synonymous with safety and over the last 50 years, the company is responsible for developing more life-saving safety innovations of any car manufacturer in the world.
