Question Kids at Bimmerfest?

Anything for kids to do at Bimmerfest? Younger kids might get bored of looking at cars.

Do people bring their kids?

Last year, some industrious person found a company that brought an inflatable jump house


Jon (and crew) Anything like that this year?

He probably didn't because they were all "locked" up. You wouldn't notice unless you were looking.

I brought my kids to the event last year, but truth be told, they weren't all that into it. Well, my 7 year old definitely wasn't, and my 1 year old (at the time) wasn't exactly jumping out of her stroller with excitement.

If we go this year, it will be sans kids.

My youngest daughter (now 5) wasn't that interested in Bimmerfest (She did however love the pool at the hotel and the bounce house at the 'fest).

My 10 year old daughter had a great time last year and was very disappointed when I told her should would not be coming with us in 2007. She's already been bitten by the BMW bug.... we are in big trouble

My kids (now 16) have ALWAYS enjoyed the cars and the circus-like atmosphere of the event...

They especially love to go to the vendor booths and collect all of the freebies...

I don't think it's just the kids that like collecting the freebies

Oh ya, just for the reccord...I think I totally didn't see the bounce house last year. I was buisy cleaning up the drool marks that I put on other people's cars

Pay attention this time when your kids learn all about figurative language in school.

Sounds like there may be a little more than just cars for our 10 year old to appreciate. Now, there's the question of whether a wife who is disinterested in cars would have anything to do there...

The people watching is fantastic

Last year we packed lunch and took chairs and sat out in the sun and socialized... this year should be even better as the sun shouldn't be so shy
