Now in its eighth year, the Halloween Car Show is a gathering of over 150 cars, ranging from classic to contemporary. The collection spans the last century, with both horse drawn vehicles and motorized carriages, many decked out in spooky décor for a day of Halloween fun.
Visitors can explore the show, snappy spooky or tongue-in-cheeky selfies in front of the automobiles, while basking in a great fall festival atmosphere. A variety of cars will be featured, including a few hearses, making for a very lively event, featuring tasty barbecue, sweet cupcakes, a live DJ and silent auction. Kiddos also get into the spirit with face painting and arts and crafts. Decorated cars will be judged by Blast from the Past Street Machines of Texas from 10 am to 2 pm and awards will be announced at 3 pm.
