“We are excited to share our love of Volkswagens with this year’s Alabama Mountain Games participants. It’s the perfect venue for bringing outdoor family fun, Volkswagen enthusiasts, and great music together – and all for the very worthy cause of supporting public access and preservation of Alabama’s beautiful natural resources,” said Spook of Airkooled Kustoms.
In addition to the classic Volkswagen show, the event also features a live music stage, dance floor, marketplace, children’s play area, competitions and exhibitions in white water kayaking and canoeing, stand up paddle boarding, disc golf, and mountain biking. Camping facilities offer restrooms, showers, and concessions.
Other games are planned, including a bungee run, boxing, corn toss, dry land boat race, dry land spouse sled race, throw rope contest, bucket wars, horseshoes, and basketball. Children will enjoy face painting and temporary tattoos as well as crafts and a run for fun relay race.
