Among the more eye-catching signs of summertime are the sparkly, colorful cars that zoom up and down the main drags on the weekends and in the evenings. At the Car Craft Summer Nationals, guests will be able to get their flashy auto fix all in one spot with over 5,000 street machines and muscle cars on display. During the festival there will be a variety of contests and vehicular pageantry, including races to put together engines, burnout competitions, and showcases that push cars to the limit in speed, acceleration, brakes, and turning capability. Folks working on remodeling and improving their own vehicles can get tips and information from pros and vendors during casual chats and comprehensive seminars. Kids can enjoy model building and other fun activities in the family zone. Visit www.FamilyEvents.com for more info.
