Destin, Fla. – Rev up your weekend with the fourth annual Vettes at the Village in The Village of Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin® Golf and Beach Resort on Saturday, October 18, 2008.   Designed to create awareness of “America’s Sports Car” and raise monies for the various charities, Vettes at the Village is the largest gathering of Corvettes in the Southeastern United States and an interactive, fun-for-the-whole family event.

From classics to contemporary, more than 250 corvettes will be on display from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Guests can get involved and vote for their favorites to determine the top three winners of each class. Vettes at the Village also features live entertainment and special giveaways.

“Vettes at the Village has seen tremendous growth in the last few years,” said Cindy Good, event manager for the Baytowne Wharf Neighborhood Association. “Each year we look to expand the number of corvettes on display, charities involved and other activities, positioning Vettes at the Village for many more years of success.”

Vettes at the Village is part of the Beaches of South Walton’s Autumn Tides program. Autumn Tides is an annual tradition and series of special events held in 14 South Walton communities celebrating music, art, nature and more.
