When my older son was born, we lived in a condo overlooking Highway 99. The worse the gridlock, the better for examining all the cars outside our window. It’s no wonder he has loved anything on wheels since birth.

The great thing about having a passion for cars is that you have a lot of company. Almost every community hosts its own car celebration. Use the arrows above the image to browse through our hand-picked, kid-tested list of local car attractions, plus a list of other upcoming car shows, touch-a-truck events and more. Lots of kids and dads (and even many moms!) will love these road-tested outings for car enthusiasts.
