Registration for the biggest Fiat event of the year has just kicked off! Called the Fiat FreakOut, the annual event is the national convention of Fiat Club America and is celebrating its 30th year. The Fiat FreakOut is a four day event filled with fun activities and friendly Fiat enthusiasts. This year's FreakOut promises to be the largest one ever and is being held on the famed Gold Coast area in Long Island, New York. It is a beautiful location, near beaches, museums and amusement parks. The busy four day event starts on Thursday, July 18th and runs through Sunday, July 21st. Scheduled are scenic drives, dinners and get togethers, plus Fiat vendors selling accessories and a Concours auto show that should not be missed.
Besides all the many activities, the Fiat FreakOut is a great way to become familiar with some of the trendsetting Fiat Group cars of the past. Expect to see a wide variety of Fiat, Lancia, and Alfa Romeo models and learn why the Fiat Group has won more European Car of the Year awards than any other car company.
Homebase for the 2013 Fiat FreakOut will be the Hyatt Regency Long Island in Hauppauge, NY. The hotel has special rates in effect, make sure you reserve your room now. With nearly 100,000 new Fiat 500 owners in North American, the club foresees a large turnout this year, so don't wait! Use the links below to register and download the event schedule. See you there!
