Park Place Motorcars hosted special Oktoberfest events recently at its Mercedes-Benz dealerships in Dallas, Grapevine and Fort Worth to celebrate the release of the new 2015 C-Class and GLA vehicles. Park Place also used the event to give back to each community.
“Oktoberfest is a great opportunity to celebrate friends and marvel at the handcrafted excellence of German engineering,” said Rob Sumner, Park Place Dealerships marketing director. “The new 2015 GLA redefines luxury in a crossover SUV, while the new C-Class is loaded with innovative technological advancements like Apple Air Play. We were also proud to recognize our great community partners.”
Park Place made donations to both the Junior League of Dallas and the Junior League of Fort Worth.
Abi Ferrin was in the house with fabulous fall fashions, along with Celebrity Cruises Captain’s Club, Jack Black Skin Care and Skintastic experiences, plus silkscreened t-shirts on demand by OneEyeOpen.
Guests enjoyed German specialties by Wendy Krispin Catering including micro Brat stations, sauerbraten sliders, potato pancakes and Black Forest shooters while sampling premium German beers from Krombacher and Beck’s and hand-crafted cocktails such as Reyka Munich Mules and Solerno Cosmopolitans.
