The Volkswagen Beetle Owners Club (VBOC) held the ‘Bug Drive’ of jubilation to commemorate their diamond jubilee in partnership with the Mount Lavinia Hotel on 7 July. MLH has been in partnership with the VBOC for the third consecutive year to highlight the only car with an international significance and indeed a national day. The day was felicitated with 75 cars that took to the streets and ended the show and shine rally at the Mount Lavinia Hotel courtyard with the celebration at the Regency Pavilion. The flag-off was headed by Dr. Juergen Morhad – Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany in Sri Lanka and Patron of the VBOC Kapila Jayawardena. Continuing the celebrations, from 8 to 13 July the Mount Lavinia Hotel is holding a ‘Herbie goes Bananas at the Mount’ week-long promotion where an-all day banana menu awaits you. The highlight of the day would be the showing off of the ole classics in all ages and colours at the hotel courtyard from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. each night until 13 July. So come and go bananas over the bugs!
