The RoboCar concept was invented and created in the fall of 2009 by Ohio native Drew Beaumier to compete in high-prize costume contests.
“My childhood dream was to be a transforming robot, I would never have guessed it would become my job. If such young ambitions are possible, then anything is,” Beaumier said. “So forever follow them no matter the obstacles.”
You won’t find them on the printed fair schedules this year (they’ll be on the schedule on the Elkhart County 4-H Fair “Fun Fair” app), because they’re a late addition to our lineup.
They replace the planned appearance by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, who had to back out of their visit to this year’s fair due to circumstances beyond our control.
Meijer will sponsor the RoboCars performances, which will happen Tuesday, July 26, through Saturday, July 30, in Heritage Park.
