Oktoberfest 2013

Portsea Island Dubs on way to Oktoberfest
 In October 2013 a colourful convoy of 6 VW buses headed from Portsmouth to the River Dart Country Park in Ashburton, Devon for Oktoberfest 2013, There was us in "Arnie", My dad & Jen in their hearing aid beige westfalia, John & Tracey in there red & white Dormobile, Kev & Karen in there blue Dormobile, Dave & Tina in the other hearing aid beige westie and Steve, Sharon & Gus in there orange Westie.

This was the first year I took Grace and she loved it, its a great little family show that sells out very quickly every year. She enjoyed looking around all the buses and beetles and making new friends in the park, she even got joint 1st place in the Halloween fancy dress competition dressed as a scary clown lol, she was really chuffed :)

As usual there were some lovely VW Campers on display all being used for what they were made for, Camping!! Thankfully the weather stayed nice this year, last year was terrible rain, typical English weather lol.

I would recommend visiting both the Oktoberfest show and also the lovely River Dart Country Park itself, it has great facility's and a tree top adventure trail for the older kids and adults.

If your there this October keep an eye out for me and Grace in the green machine :)
