Park Place Dealerships’ Selection Committee and Lombardi Family Concepts hosted a group of Dallas-Fort Worth car collectors at Toulouse Café and Bar in Legacy West to kick off registration for the second annual Park Place Luxury & Supercar Showcase, to be held Saturday October 13, 2018 at the Four Seasons Resort & Club Dallas at Las Colinas.
“We wanted to thank the collectors that participated in our inaugural event last year,” said Liz Shafton, Park Place Dealerships senior marketing manager and chair of the Park Place Luxury & Supercar Showcase. “This year, the event will be even bigger and better. The Collectors Concours will be on the fairway of the TPC Four Seasons Championship golf course. We’ll also have a Club Car Showcase for car clubs to gather and engage with other car enthusiasts.”
The Park Place Luxury & Supercar Showcase, which sold out in its inaugural year, is open to the public with tickets ranging from $25 – $50 for general admission and $100 for VIP All Access, including the VIP Lounge with complimentary food and beverages. Tickets are available online at LuxurySupercarShowcase.com.
“While the event will showcase some of the world’s finest cars, our luxury lifestyle event will have something for everyone in the family,” explained Shafton. “There will be a runway fashion show by Highland Park Village and live music on the Lexus Live stage. The whole family will enjoy the Kid’s Concours area presented by Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, featuring the North Texas Diecast Collectors Club’s 60-foot interactive Hot Wheels track, freshly popped popcorn, a soda pop truck and lawn games. There will also be several popular food trucks on-site all day.”
