Easter weekend doesn't mean there aren't any car events in Kansas City. Shows, cruises, and races for April 22-23, 2011

Easter is upon us, and that results in an abbreviated Kansas City car events calendar for this weekend. But even at that, there are still a couple of important happenings that are definitely worth knowing about.

The Belton car cruise gets underway for the first time this year on Saturday night, and that’s usually a pretty big gathering. There’s also a charity car show in Raytown on Saturday that looks pretty promising. Shows at Lakeside, KCIR, and Heartland Park all give you a chance to watch people burn expensive racing fuel that you don’t have to pay for directly.

In all, there are several places you can get your car fix before the Easter Bunny shows up on Sunday.

If you would like to have an automotive event featured in an upcoming calendar here on Hover Motor Co., be sure to check out this link for all the details.
