Sarasota, Florida– With construction complete on their new state-of-the-art showroom and facility, Sarasota Ford’s new showroom and service areas rival the comforts of many high end luxury dealerships. Not to rest on their laurels, Sarasota Ford is throwing a grand reopening celebration that includes a carnival with games, performances by Circus Arts Conservatory, live music by the Matt Winter Band plus a performance by world record tightrope walker and Sarasota resident Nik Wallenda.
Coinciding with the celebration is the 50th anniversary of Ford’s iconic Mustang, featuring a “50 Years Of The Ford Mustang” display. The display will feature beautiful Ford Mustangs from 1965 – 2015. Sarasota Ford will also be giving away a 24 month lease on a brand new 2015 Ford Mustang during the celebration.
In his first public performance since his world record breaking walks between Chicago skyscrapers, high wire artist Nik Wallenda, who’s also known for tightrope walking across both the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls, will help Sarasota Ford open its brand new facility with a 100′ high skywalk over the new showroom at 5pm during the event. “Sarasota has been my home all my life, and i’m proud to be a part of Sarasota Ford’s Grand Opening.” says Wallenda, who has been hailed as the greatest entertainer of our generation.
