KCI Cruise Specialty Car Event

September 12, 2015

3 pm - ?


Enjoy a car show near Kansas City International Airport!

Hundreds of classic cars, muscle cars, hot rods, rat rods, exotics and imports will be on hand in a casual, un-judged atmosphere. A Bounce House will be on hand for the kids. Bring lawn chairs and shade!



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 tickets to Kansas Speedway and other sporting events and lots more!

There will also be a $1-a-chance 50/50 drawing, where someone will go home with hundreds of $$! KCI concessionaire HMS Host will donate hot dogs, chips and drinks for sale toward the charity so bring some green!

Event photos of your car available for sale. Dixie Clicks Photography will be on hand in the southwest corner of the parking lot to take a beauty shot of your ride. They can print a variety of sizes on site and provide a digital copy of the photo. Check it out!
