Families Welcome at The Heights Car Show April 7 in Richardson
“What began more than a decade ago as a car show in a church parking lot has turned into an all-day festival that’s fun for the whole family,” said show organizer Brian Ratcliff. “Many car shows really don’t want kids around, but a lot of the people who show their cars here invite kids to get up close to their cars. They love to share their car’s history. This year, Hagerty Insurance will host a Kids Judging Camp to teach kids what to look for in a classic car, and how to judge them on a point system. Parents can register their children for the camp at the Hagerty booth the morning of the show. Judging will begin at noon.”
Ken Savage and the Best Kept Secret Band will play classic rock hits throughout the day. Chicken and barbecue sandwiches will be on sale.
