NO CAR ENTRY FEES!! FREE ADMISSION!! OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!!
Cruise Nights or Cruise Ins the latest craze in car culture where owners of classic, muscle and other special interest autos gather to show off their prized possessions and share their love of cars with other enthusiasts and anyone who likes cars. There is no real cruising occurring, as vehicles are parked in a parking lot, usually with hoods open to display engine chrome and detailing. Participants “hang out” by their cars and motorcycles or wander to admire others’ rides, and the general public shows up to enjoy them, as well.
The Kansas City Aviation Department plans the events as fund raisers for the City of Kansas City, Missouri’s Combined Charities program, which bundles a variety of local, regional and national charities. Prizes are donated by tenants and area businesses.
$1 per chance to score great prizes like tickets to Kansas Speedway, Chiefs, Royals and Miami Heat! Plus hotel stays, car rentals, Zona Rosa gift cards, dinners, gangster tours, town car rides, baseball bats, hot rod parts, KCI parking and more!! There will also be a $1-a-chance 50/50 drawing. KCI concessionaire HMS Host and Pepsi will donate hot dogs, chips and drinks for sale toward the charity so bring some green!
