The event will feature classic cars, motorcycles and trucks on display plus food, music and a raffle with prizes for families.  Kids will love this show with the Chick-Fil-A Cow, Grizzbee from the Utah Grizzlies and Bumble from the Salt Lake Bees all expected to be in attendance.

Olympic champion Derek Parra, Amanda Jones, from 101.5 the Eagle, the Geek Squad and Governor Gary Herbert will all be making appearances and will help out on judging the vehicles for awards. 

Utah car show veteran, J.C. Hackett will be on hand spinnin' the oldies and the fun kicks off at 4pm.
