Kansas City auto shows, car cruises, and events for March 2013

It has been awhile since we had enough car-related events to post a calendar here in Kansas City, but the Greater Kansas City Auto Show tends to sort of kick things off.

I’m planning to be at the Race-On Car Show at the Snake Saturday Parade in North Kansas City on March 16, so be sure to check out all the racecars, say howdy, and even see my magnificent old ratty pickup.

Weather-permitting, there are a couple of cruise nights sparking up this month, including the Basehor Boys at Sonic and the Longbranch Cruise in Overland Park.  So if you’re looking for a little car action on a Friday night, check those out.

I am including car shows, cruises, and events in Kansas City for the entire month of March.  See the list below.  And if you know of any more, please drop me a line at craig@hovermotorco.com.
