It's with great regret that I must announce that Jingle Bugs Rock has now been permanently cancelled. It was just late last month that so much was happening and we were moving ahead full steam to making what we thought would be one of our best shows yet. However things change and a tough decision had to be made.
It turns out that a couple of our key sponsors, WFTV 9 Family Connection and Fun Spot, decided it would be better to pursue their own toy drive for the Marines using Fun Spots two facilities in South Orange and Osceola County. And a good decision it is in that I'm sure they will be highly successful. The problem is that it would be on the same weekend as our show which meant fewer toys and the Marine Corps. would be stretched even thinner than they already were.
We therefore had to ask ourselves if it still made sense for our event even to continue. Yes, it was a lot of fun and everyone has been so great to work with, but the answer was that it probably would not be beneficial, i.e., it would take more to put on the show than the cost of the toys that we would collect. Therefore, the event has been cancelled!
We truly believe Jingle Bugs filled a very specific need in Osceola County over the past 7 years and we just want to take a moment to thank everyone who made it possible, i.e., Old Town and all of our other very special sponsors who have given so much in financial aid and prizes, the car clubs who stepped in to help man the show, and of course the loyal VW owners who went out of their way to bring toys for the children. It's been a great run and we are going to miss everyone!
Let us encourage everyone to find a special way again this year to help those in need. It's not hard to find an event going on in your area and/or other ways to help.
Enjoyed the ride! May God bless...
Gail, Charlotte and Stephen Love

Info on sites/rates
Make your reservations online here https://www.campingfriend.com/suwanneeriverrendezv...mp;source=
1) For those not wanting or needing a site with electric or water you can pay the Primitive Fee of $20.00 a night per bus and pull in next to us, the pavilion, or anyone who is with the group and doesn't mind.
2) You don't need to reserve, but it is recommended if you want electric and/or water.
3) I think most electric sites now have 120v 30AMP outlets. It is wise to pick up an adapter (male 120v 30amp 3 wire to female 120v 20a 3 wire).
4) The picnic pavilion we use for cooking and eating and the main fire pit is near sites 40 and 57.
5) For the past 7 years or so we have a local who delivers a trailer of fire wood for $100.00 for use mainly at the main fire pit near the pavilion and donations usually come to right about the cost of the wood. (It's amazing how close it usually comes)

April 15th, 16th & 17th 2016 ~ Fredericksburg, TX
Welcome to the Texas VW Classic located in the historic town of Fredericksburg, Texas. Surrounded by the scenic and sometimes wildflower covered hill country of central Texas, Fredericksburg is the perfect venue for a classic Volkswagen show. VW’s of all types, colors and makes show up to fill the streets around town and nearly every parking lot in town has a classic VW. The old German settlement not only offers a beautiful area to cruise the tourist lined streets in your classic vehicle but is also home to some of the best craft & antique shopping, music venues, and German restaurants west of Frankfurt.
The Texas VW Classic, held annually the third weekend in April, has grown into a three day event with some participants arriving to set up camp on Thursday afternoon. In addition to on-site VW and tent camping for participants, Fredericksburg offers a unique array of quaint accommodations including Bed & Breakfast options, local and chain hotels. Rreservations should be made early due to the popularity of the area this time of year.
Friday offers the show participants time to settle in to their camp sites, check out the park as well as some of the great show cars around and pick up a few early bargains from the swap area. In addition there are several smaller cruises to some of the local attractions or restaurants. That night when many arrive to the show it is like homecoming; meeting and greeting old friends, exchanging stories of adventures (a.k.a. breakdowns) on the trip out and talking around the campfires.
Saturday morning dawns over a sleepy camp area where the smell of breakfast and camp coffee fills the air. People start polishing their vehicles and preparing for the days activities. Since the Texas VW Classic usually coincides with Earth Day, we always try to donate and plant a tree in the park. This usually takes place near the Pioneer Pavilion just before the Bluebonnet Cruise at 2 pm. Past cruises have taken a line of over 150 VW’s thru downtown Fredericksburg to local destinations like Lukenbach, the Willow City loop, LBJ National Park, Becker’s Vineyard, etc. Upon arrival at our destination all the drivers have been entered in a raffle drawing for picnic baskets filled with an assortment of items like wine, wine glasses, picnic dishes, cookies and VW toys. After enjoying refreshments and activities at the chosen destination everyone returns to the Pioneer Pavilion by 6 pm for a full blown Texas B-B-Q dinner with all the trimmings brought in from Cousin’s renowned B-B-Q restaurant in Ft Worth. Afterwards the campfires, VW stories, music and visiting go on into the night.
Sunday morning the activity begins around 6 am as participants scurry for prime display location and put final touches on brightly polished vehicles in anticipation of the judge’s rounds. Judging starts at 11 am and wraps up with award presentations at about 2 pm for the ‘Best Of’ awards and about twenty-five class awards recognizing 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place in each. In addition all the participants are eligible to win a People’s Choice award based on different themes such as old songs or movie titles. VW enthusiasts can easily spend the entire day checking out the beautiful rides to see what accessories someone has that they don’t or what part should actually go on their car. That special part you’ve been searching for just may come as a bargain among all the new and used parts vendors in the abundant swap meet area. Then the weekend is topped off by the awarding of trophies with the top prize of ‘Best of Show’ going to the finest VW in attendance. Although winning a trophy is sweet topping on the cake, there is one truism that is always revealed: “VW drivers don’t need a trophy, they drive a trophy”.
The Texas VW Classic has become the largest Classic VW show in the southwest. This is due in part to the fun, family atmosphere and in most part to the contributions by The Texas Club Collation, and the many other volunteers that pour their sweat & love of the hobby into making this event happen. Come and join us for a great weekend this April in Fredericksburg’s Lady Johnson Municipal Park. For more information on the show and Fredericksburg visit us at http://www.texasvwclassic.com or [email protected]
