  The 25th Mercedes-Benz Pageant was held on Saturday 2 May at the BMICH from 7:30 a.m. to 12 noon. A total of 560 Mercedes-Benz vehicles gathered under one roof. The Mercedes-Benz Pageant is an event of fellowship between Mercedes-Benz cars, their owners and families. This is the only event in Sri Lanka, probably even the whole world, where more than 500 Mercedes-Benz cars, their owners and their families get-together at one location at the same time. The Mercedes-Benz Pageant is organised by the Mercedes-Benz Club of Sri Lanka and is sponsored by DIMO – the Authorised Distributor for Mercedes-Benz in Sri Lanka. This year is a significant year for the Mercedes-Benz Club as it celebrates its 25th anniversary. The Mercedes-Benz Club Committee comprises a team of seasoned die-hard automobile enthusiasts lead by Upali Kapilasena. This year’s MB Pageant showcased more than 32 different models from the pre-war era to the latest C-Class and GLA-Class. In addition, DIMO also displayed their DIMO Premier (Pre-Owned) vehicles, their Jeep and Chrysler vehicle range and introduced the Mercedes-Benz Citan at the event. The morning began with Mercedes-Benz customers parking their vehicles in the respective areas at BMICH. Thereafter they were treated to a sumptuous buffet from Mount Lavinia Hotel. Live music was played throughout the event, courtesy of ‘Flame’. Many activities were lined up for kids, ladies and gents to get them involved and keep them entertained. Kiddies’ area had a separate buffet section and many fun activities.
