Do you remember the first car show you ever attended? As a kid, which car did you dream of someday owning? Kids of all ages love cars because they’re fast, colorful, shiny, loud and just plain cool. Seattle is a great area for car shows of all types and provide fun for you and your whole family. Most importantly, car shows allow todays younger generations to get up close to the cars they usually only see in video games or as toys.
You don’t have to own a car to attend a car show, and entry for spectators is usually free. If you are considering buying a car, or are in the process of restoring a car, going to a show is a great way to get ideas. It’s also a great way to get your family involved with your passion. Being able to walk along rows of cars and gather ideas for your own ride is a wonderful experience.
Many car shows are open to all makes and models. These types of shows attract a broad variety of vehicles and are often the most fun for kids. Diversity is important for a kid because it’s easy to get bored looking at the same old thing. Kids will walk through a show and look for their fantasy car, and it’s often surprising to see which cars your kids will be drawn to.
The future of the automotive culture depends on todays youth learning to love and appreciate cars. Seeing a car on television or in a magazine doesn’t even compare to seeing a car with your own eyes. Being able to stand next to their dream car, and even have their photo taken with it, will make any kids day. If you see that your kids have an interest in cars, do them a favor and take them to a show!
