Here at the McCarthy Auto Group family of Kansas City car dealers, we're excited about the opportunity for you (and for us!) to see the latest vehicles and innovations from Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Hyundai, Nissan, and Toyota on display.

With more than 500 vehicles to see at the 2016 Kansas City Auto Show, there's plenty of chances for you to get behind the wheel and check out all the new features available on today's latest models. Find out how technology is changing the way we drive and interact with cars. Get under the hood and marvel at the newest fuel-efficient engines. Learn about all of the cutting-edge safety features that are helping to make our roadways safer. You can even test drive select models from various manufacturers.

But that's just the beginning of what's in store during Kansas City's premier automotive showcase. Visit the "KC Garage" and quench your thirst with a selection of ice-cold craft beers. Hungry? They've got you covered with a special guest appearance by "The Food Truck Mafia." Bochi, Crave of Kansas City, Beauty of the Bistro, KC BBQ Truck, Monk's Roast Beef, Savanna Jane Lemonade, and Ohana's Shaved Ice will be serving up an array of freshly prepared fare sure to satisfy any appetite.

Got kids? There's plenty of fun automotive-themed activities for the young ones. The "Kids Korner" features a special sneak-peek appearance by LEGO® KidsFest. If your kids love LEGOs, then they'll have a blast building and racing their own custom LEGO cars, as well as have a chance to take pictures with life-size LEGO versions of Superman, Star Wars' Boba Fett, Cinderella, and even a "ferocious" tiger.

To give parents a chance to enjoy AutoFest without the little ones in tow, you can drop off your children ages 4 - 9 at a special Paradise Park area for up to two hours. Retired Paradise Park teachers will have plenty of car-themed activities to help keep the kids entertained.

If you get nostalgic about "The Good Old Days," or if you'd just like to see how automobiles have evolved over the years, you won't want to miss a fascinating showcase of antique and classic vehicles brought to you by the Art of the Car Consours and the Kansas City Automotive Museum. You'll even get a chance to take a selfie with six antique fire trucks.

As a special surprise, there will be a guest appearance by the one and only "Moose Mobile" to celebrate our hometown Royals’ World Series Championship. This crazy, Royals Blue vehicle with the huge antlers was customized by avid Royals fan Craig Rookstool to show his love for Royals' third baseman Mike "Moose" Moustakas.

So get in gear and head on out to this year's Kansas City Auto Show. We hope to see you there!
