Our 10th and final Scion Night at Knott’s Scary Farm was a huge success thanks in no small part to the fantastic Scion owners who’ve made the last decade possible. We’re proud to include ourselves as part of that great community and are looking forward to what exciting things are in store for the next ten years.
Turnout for the event was as large as it’s ever been, with all free tickets being completely distributed before the clock even hit 5pm. Around 3,500 Scions made it out to the event carrying approximately 12,500 people, each of whom were asked to bring a toy valued at $10 or more for donation. The Scion community came through huge as we were able to collect 27,000 donations for Toys for Tots!
Our colleagues at Toyota were kind enough to lend us over a dozen Tundra trucks to help us transport all of the toys. We owe a big thanks to all of the Scion owners and their friends who generously donated, as well as everyone who helped provide support for the effort!
Gates to the parking lot opened at 2pm, and while the park itself didn’t open until 7pm, we made sure there was a lot to see and do in the meantime. Food trucks were located around the lot, giving attendees a chance to grab a bite to eat before things got started. We also had a few of our favorite Scion project builds on display, some of which you may recognize from our What’s Featured at Scion Series on the blog.
Guests were also treated to some special sights and sounds, including a skateboarding competition, live music from great bands (Flashback Heart Attack) and DJs (DJ Cable, Bently Foy, W. Steele), and a host of vendors including OEM Audio +, Five Axis, BeatSonic, and sponsors HD Radio and Aha Radio, without whom this event couldn’t have happened. And, with a zip-line and trampoline bungee on site, there was no shortage of things to see or do before Knott’s Scary Farm kicked off.
Once everyone made it inside the park, they were also treated to a performance from our special guest headliner for the evening, T-Pain. Performing at the Calico Stage inside the park, T-Pain and DJ Jeremiah Red drew a crowd that was three times larger than last year, and was perhaps the biggest one we’ve ever had at Scion Night at Knott’s Scary Farm. His energetic performance was the perfect way to kick off a great evening.
Knott’s Scary Farm has been a great host for the last ten years, and we’re thrilled they were able to help us make this one our biggest and best ever. Once again, we owe a huge thanks to sponsors HD Radio and Aha Radio for making Scion Night happen, and to all of the great Scion Owners who came out!
