LODGING DISCOUNTS: Currently, SIX preferred lodging facilities are booking rooms for MustangFest. Pre-registrants receive a LODGING VALIDATION CODE within 24 hrs. after PayPal checkout. For those mailing checks, their registration number is assigned the day we receive their check at the post office. In 2009, we had several last-minute cancellations from Oklahoma due to weather, so now ONLY pre-registered participants get the MustangFest DISCOUNT rates on Mustang Island. Each registrant has a one-unit limit at these rates, and the savings are severe. Those who stay at The Dunes in a luxury condo get 10% OFF their already off-peak rates, saving you enough to buy lunch or a pair of tickets to the MustangFest LIVE Dinner Show on Saturday night. Those of you who stay at Plantation Suites in a deluxe Double Queen suite will get $40.00 OFF each weekend night, for a savings of $80.00 - that's enough to PAY FOR YOUR PRE-REGISTRATION and have money left over! Seasonal rate at Plantation Suites is $109/night (sleeps 4 in two queen beds), but MustangFest registrants get $69/night - that's cheaper per person than many Motel 6® locations! For 2012, we have added additional lodging facilities. Some of our hotel properties FILLED UP to 100% OCCUPANCY! This year, the place to be in early October is MustangFest - get your registration in NOW. — Not just a show... It's a Destination.TM

VEHICLE SECURITY: We will have police on the Circle Of Stangs™ from HIGH NOON until 5:00pm, when the roadways are re-opened to thru traffic on Saturday afternoon. Local police officers will be around throughout the day on Saturday. Each lodging facility has lighted parking areas and interior security cameras (also exterior cameras at The Dunes - official Host Club Hotel). Night auditors view the security cameras at intervals determined by the property manager. As with all road trips in your Mustang, use the same caution you would in your own hometown. Because of the value of many of the vehicles, we will ask the Port Aransas Police Department to apply special attention to our lodging facilities on Friday and Saturday night. As always, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE for your vehicle - lock all doors, do not leave valuables in sight and arm your car alarm if you have one. Mustang Island has a very low crime rate, as evidenced by the police blotter in the local newspaper - mostly about party people on the beach, etc. - Mustang Island is a great place to enjoy MustangFest in October... and a great place to ‘Mustang vacation‘ — year 'round!
