The boardwalk of Salou shone in the colors of the rainbow. No, not because of a weather phenomenon. In mid-June, smart fans from 32 countries came together in the Spanish seaport on the Costa Corada for the smart times 2017 – along with their small colorful city speedsters. The global smart fan community celebrated their cult brand and its variety with music, a smart flea market, a vehicle agility course, joint excursions and test drives – e.g. with the new smart electric drive models. The highlight of the event: the traditional closing parade. The procession of 532 smart vehicles wound its way from Salou along the Costa Corada through tourist hotspots and picturesque fishing villages like a chain of colorful sugar-coated Smarties candies.
