FESTIVALS OF SPEED – Saturday March 25th

Sunnyland is proud to host the FESTIVALS OF SPEED in conjunction with our show this year. Sunnyland member Joe Sabatini, who runs this very successful program throughout Florida, will be bringing a beautiful display of antique and classic cars to our show. The Sunnyland members have participated in other FESTIVALS OF SPEED shows around Florida and it has been a very positive experience to recruit new members to our chapter.
