The redesigned Subaru Impreza made its debut in style on Saturday, March 25 at the Art of the Oyster. Boasting an all new global platform engineered to deliver increased levels of handling response, active and passive safety, all while greatly improving ride comfort, and providing greater passenger and cargo room, the Subaru Impreza is truly a rare pearl. At The Art of the Oyster, all you can eat low country boil and steamed delectable oysters were enjoyed by 500 of Columbia County residents all while listening to Banana Pancakes, a Jack Johnson cover band, perform throughout the evening. Thirty of the Columbia County Artist’s Guild’s artists set up and displayed their talents and even hosted a “paint your own oyster” for anyone feeling crafty. Gerald Jones Subaru put on display three Subaru Imprezas with trunks full of treasure. “Chests” were filled with prizes such as Ray Ban sunglasses, Marmot backpacks, Kleen Kanteens, Starbucks gift cards, and Harmon Kardon headphones. For anyone who visited the Subaru tent and filled out a raffle ticket, they had the opportunity to win one of six treasure chests! Windsor Jewelers celebrated the Impreza launch with a “driving for pearls” game. Three floating tees were placed in the pond for all golfers and enthusiasts to try their luck chipping a golf ball to sink a hole in one. Although no one was able to make a hole in one, three contestants hit the tee greens and each were awarded a pearl necklace, bracelet and earring set exclusively from Windsor Jewelers. Children were able to enjoy the event from a “grotto” in the playground area at the park. They were fed hot dogs, chips and a drink while hanging out with Disney Princesses. For $5 parents could check their children into a safe and secure area and enjoy their evening without worry. The Art of the Oyster was definitely a fun and entertaining way to launch the Subaru Impreza!
