Dubs by the Lake a Volkswagen lover's delight at Lake Liddell Recreation Park

DO you have a penchant for the Love Bug or the iconic Volkswagen Beetle?

If the answer is yes, then head to the second annual Dubs by the Lake at Muswellbrook's GJs by the Lake, on Hebden Road, at the end of the month.

There, you'll be treated to an incredible array of the classic vehicle, plus a lot more, on Saturday, February 29, and Sunday, March 1.

Dubs by the Lake will also feature music, a kids' corner, limbo, VW cruise, show and shine, market and food stalls, a swap meet, go-karting, rock climbing and laser tag, with a few extra surprises.

"We hosted it last year for the first time - and it was fantastic," one of the organisers, Corrina Gouveia, said.

"Everyone loved the good vibes.

"But, it should be bigger and better in 2020.

"While we had about 80 Vee-Dubs [at the inaugural event], we're expecting that number to be much higher on this occasion.

"We've received numerous inquiries already.

"Many people are looking to camp here a night or two beforehand, too.

"They know it'll be a real fun atmosphere over the weekend."

Ms Gouveia admitted her fiancé Beau was a "bit of a Vee-Dub nut".

In fact, the pair boasts 11 between them, including her favourite, "Ringo".

"All of the vehicles have got their own personalities," she said.

"Every Vee-Dub is different; that's why we adore them.

"Anyone who has one will know what I'm talking about.

"As for Beau, his love of Vee-Dubs was passed down through his family.

"His grandfather had so many of them, so I guess he had no choice.

"It was Beau's idea to put on a car show - I was just happy to play my part in making it happen."

And, it's all for a good cause.

The proceeds from Dubs by the Lake will benefit the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service (WRHS).

"In 2019, we supported another great local organisation, Where There's a Will," Ms Gouveia said.

"However, we've now decided to help the WRHS, a vital service that does a terrific job in the community.

"Upper Hunter community liaison officer Danny Eather's been amazing to deal with."

Gates will open at the Lake Liddell Recreation Park from 7am on both days.

The cost is $5 a car (for the day); $7 a VW (for two days); $5 to enter the grass events; and $5 to enter the limbo contest.
