Art Car Campout: A Recap


Where would you expect to find vehicles shaped like a hotdog, a gold bunny, a marshmallow chick and an L.L.Bean Boot – all in one place? This past Saturday, it was right at our own flagship store in Freeport, Maine. The first-ever Art Car Campout featured the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, the Lindt Gold Bunny Car, the Peeps Peepster and our own Bootmobile.

We set up the L.L.Bean flagship campus with games, a campfire, grills, tents and fun giveaways.



Visitors enjoyed more than 2,000 hotdogs, compliments of Oscar Mayer and the Hotdoggers.

Here’s some of the free stuff we scored!

Of course, there were many photo opportunities.



Even our friends from the Weather Channel joined in the fun!

There were plenty of Peeps, as well as some delicious chocolate truffles from Lindt.




The Bootmobile drivers gave away baseballs with L.L.Bean’s 100th anniversary logo.



Looks like everyone had a great time at the campout!
