SARASOTA - Jeep drivers and fans of classic cars were at the Sarasota Fairgrounds for the two day event. 

The event is a fundraiser for local charities including Offroad United and Bridge of Life. The fest featured an obstacle course and other games and short races designed for jeeps. 

"Sarasota has an amazing amount of jeep clubs and jeep enthusiasts and we've actually pulled people from pretty much Southeast; we've got from the Carolinas, Georgia, all of Florida coming in," Jeep-Fest Co-Director Bill Elkins said.
