Kansas City Auto Show, Basehor Cruise, and Snake Saturday. The Kansas City car show, cruise, and race calendar for March 7-11, 2012
Of course, the big deal is the Greater Kansas City International Auto Show. If you like new cars, this is a good opportunity to check out cars from nearly every manufacturer. The occasional concept car or exotic pops up here from time-to-time too.
But that’s not all. Local race cars always make a strong showing at the C.A.R.B. Race-On Car Show during the Snake Saturday Parade, and there is a classic car cruise scheduled for Friday night at the Sonic in Basehor. So de-winterize the old hot rod and get out there. It’s been a long winter!
