Announcement: SaturnFest Virtual Homecoming Returns this Fall to SaturnFans.com

I'm excited to announce the return of SaturnFest — SaturnFans.com's "virtual" homecoming! Following in the tradition of the first SaturnFest celebrations hosted by SaturnFans.com several years ago, SaturnFest '09 will take place online in late October on the computer-generated grassy fields of the Saturnalia Fairgrounds.

Work on this new section of the website has been in development since February as a result of the overwhelming response to the SaturnFans.com "SAVE SATURN" petition. Roger Penske's planned acquisition of Saturn, which was officially announced in early June, only helped to further fuel owner enthusiasm for the brand's future, its vehicles, and rich heritage.

Additional details about this year's festivities — including specific dates and activity previews — will be unveiled over the coming weeks and months leading up to the week-long Saturn celebration. As in years past, SaturnFest will include a variety of virtual carnival-themed activities and experiences. For the first time, volunteers will be recruited to help make certain "events" more interactive than ever before! Even if you're not selected as a volunteer, you'll still be able play an important role in making SaturnFest a truly different kind of online event.

Excited? I hope so!

Stay tuned for more information about what you can do to make SaturnFest successful, fun, and memorable experience. Keep up-to-date with the latest SaturnFest teasers, as well as the most recent Saturn news, reviews, and rumors by following SaturnFans on Twitter or by signing up to have the latest SaturnFans news updates delivered each morning directly in your mailbox.
