That’s essentially what visitors who take part in Colossal Radio’s Jeep Fest to benefit our veterans and volunteers can expect.
The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 4 at The Hofford Mill in Weissport. The rain date is Sept. 11.
Layne “Doc” Roberts, owner of Colossal Radio in Palmerton, said part of the proceeds raised from the event will go toward the Lehighton Fire Department.
Roberts said the rest of the proceeds will be given to the veterans at the Valor Clinic.
“It’s a party with a purpose,” Roberts said. “It’s about giving back to our volunteers and our veterans.”
Roberts noted that Jeeps have preferred parking.
“You do not need a jeep to attend,” he said. “There’s parking on the grounds of The Hofford Mill for cars as well.”
Roberts said there will be food packages available, a Flex Ramp; as well as entertainment from Band of Brothers and Blunt.
Roberts said guests can take a chance to win a Bronson EBike Hunting Edition for which the proceeds will be split between the Lehighton Fire Department and the Valor Clinic.
Roberts thanked the event’s sponsors, which include Blocker Enterprises of Lehighton; Zimmerman’s Dairy of Lehighton; Snyder’s Trailside Designs of Kunkletown; Brown Daub on Hecktown Road in Easton; Jeep Enthusiasts of Eastern Pennsylvania; and Bronson EBikes, which will also sponsor a test drive and ride.
Tickets may be ordered through colossalradio.rocks. The deadline to purchase tickets is Aug. 29.
