Alumapalooza is a wrap!

Alumapalooza 8 has just concluded on the grounds of the Airstream factory in Jackson Center, Ohio.

The week-long party at the Mothership featured fun activities every day (yoga, bike rides, happy hours, Plein air painting, the always-awesome Aluminum Gong Show, water balloon baseball, fabulous food) and the educational seminars benefitted every Airstreamer. Attendees learned from experts during hands-on workshops on winterizing, tire changing, tire safety, polishing, leak detection, battery maintenance, propane systems, awning maintenance, and more.

Tim and Myles Thompson (a Nashville-based father-and-son duo) performed, and Antsy McClain, favorite son of the Pine View Heights trailer park, had his audience laughing and singing along.

Two special Airstream edition Pedego electric bikes were given away, and the surprise lucky winner of the first e-bike was Airstream VP of Sales, Justin Humphreys. Justin immediately put the bike up for auction and raised $2700 for the local food bank. Who got the second bike? The winner will be announced in the next issue of Outside Interests.

Attendees have been raving about the good times they had, and the weather was perfect all week (first time ever!) Several sites at Alumapalooza 9, next year, have already been presold.

We expect an early sell-out for the next Alumapalooza—always held the week after Memorial Day at Airstream, Inc.  Watch for registration announcements and save your space early!
