The local Corvette owners club in Fond du Lac is once again planning its annual Trip around the Lake for 2016, and it looks to be just as exciting as previous years, if not more so! If you’re looking for more info on when you’ll be able to see the parade of Chevy Corvettes roll through, then you should take a look at the rest of our post for info on the Fond de Vettes 45th Trip around the Lake 2016.
When is the 2016 Corvette Trip around the Lake?
This year’s Trip around the Lake will be occurring on June 5, 2016 — and is the 45th time this event has happened! Registration is free for all Corvettes and will begin at 7 a.m. at the Forest Mall parking lot on West Johnson St., and will continue until 8:45 a.m. The first Corvette will roll out at 9 a.m. and a stop will be made around 10:15 a.m. at Waverly Beach — which serves as a rough halfway point around Lake Winnebago.
Lunch and refreshments (provided by the Knights of Columbus) are available here at Holiday Automotive following the Trip around the Lake — where there will also be live music, raffles, and door prizes! Nearly 100 Corvettes attended last year, which is amazing considering we had some rough weather that day!
About the Fond de Vettes Club in Fond du Lac
The Fond de Vettes club dates back all the way to 1974 and has continued strong for over 40 years now. Its members are dedicated to creating planned trips, events, and social activities for its fellow Corvette owners. The club meets at American Legion on 500 Fond du Lac Ave on the third Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. — unless noted in the newsletter.
Apart from the annual Trip around the Lake, the Fond de Vettes is also participating in a number of other events in June around Fond du Lac. You’ll also be able to see its members provide security at the annual Walleye Weekend in Fond du Lac, and they will be making a trip out to Elkhart Lake’s Road America for the June Sprints!
