Effingham, Ill. (June 20, 2014) – Mid America Motorworks is inviting Corvette enthusiasts, Veterans, and military aficionados to Corvette Funfest: Vets with Vettes, Sept. 18-21, 2014. Dubbed the World’s Largest Corvette Party, Corvette Funfest welcomes thousands of Corvettes and their owners to Effingham, Ill. for four days celebrating America’s Sports Car.
“Every year at Corvette Funfest, we see more and more Corvettes with patriotic paint jobs and designs,” said Mike Yager, Chief Cheerleader at Mid America Motorworks. “With some of my own brothers who served, members of the Mid America Motorworks family with military backgrounds and all of the service men and women in our extended Corvette family, it is a privilege to show them how much their commitment and sacrifice means.”
Mid America Motorworks is planning a one-of-a-kind celebration for Vets with Vettes. Veterans and Corvette owners with patriotically customized Corvettes will receive special parking in a place of honor on the Corvette Funfest grounds. The weekend will also include presentations honoring members of the military, past and present, as well as special attractions.
One such attraction is the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall®, a 3/5 scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. The Wall spans 300 feet when constructed and is part of the Vietnam and All Veterans Brevard in Brevard County, Flo.
