Chasing the sun at the 2017 Beetle Sunshine Tour

For one weekend every August, the streets of a small German resort town turn into a continuous parade of second-generation Volkswagen Beetle models. In its 13th year, the festival drew thousands of fans and about 720 Beetle models, most personalized in some creative fashion. While the Baltic coast tends to have rainy weekends, the occasional sprinkle didn’t dampen the mood for many – including one couple of new Beetle fans that chose the Sunshine Tour festival stage to get married.

The “Welcome to America” theme this year drew several Beetle wearing stars and stripes, along with a special display of Scott Speed’s Global Rallycross Beetle. Check out the fun in the gallery below.
