The event was well-organized for roll-in, and overall had a great vibe to hang out at and chill.

SWERV United, an automotive culture brand, in collaboration with Chisomovement Entertainment held their first-time event at Orlando Festival Park on Saturday, April 13th. "It's a festival with many activities and competitions for the Orlando, Florida automotive community," mentions Lee Vermont, a PASMAG contributing photographer. The festival included a car meet, Show & Shine, skateboard competition, two-step competition, basketball competition, and concert.

"There is a very large automotive aftermarket scene in Florida," states Vermont, "and there was a lot of support shown at the free-to-the-public event."

The trip down to Orlando for Vermont started mid-day Friday, April 12th and he stayed at a friend's house. "I convinced [my friend] to bring his Infiniti G37 convertible to the show! He was also going to be a vendor with 3-2-1 No Fault Group, so it all worked out to roll-in together."

Vendor roll-in was from Saturday between 7:00 AM to 8:00 AM, followed by car show entrants. Roll-in was very organized with a large support staff, getting the vendors in and situated.

"Checking out the booths, Quest Works had a cool 1:18 scale display of one of their booth cars," recalls Vermont. The basketball 2-on-2 tournament was held after lunch, followed by the 2-step and skateboard competitions.
