Looking for something fun to do this weekend? Head over to the Calgary International Auto and Truck Show, located at the BMO Centre at Stampede Park! This yearly event has been growing exponentially, and the 2013 organizers expect that trend to continue. Last year, over 80,000 car and truck enthusiasts attended the show, an increase of 20,000 since 2003. The event kicked off with the Vehicles and Violins gala, on the evening of the 12th. This celebration benefited a host of local charities, including the Alberta Cancer Foundation, Inn from the Cold, Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, The Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation, The Parkinson's Society of Southern Alberta, and many more.
The show itself promises to be nothing short of awesome! Car fans of all stripes will love getting up close and personal with makes like Bugatti, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Maserati, Ferrari, Lotus, and McLaren. With new models being unveiled and new designs on display, you're sure to find something amazing to grab your attention. If that's not enough to entice you, maybe the promise of car giveaways is. This year, two straight-out-of-the-factory vehicles are offered: a 2013 Volkswagen Passat Comfortline 2.5L, courtesy of the Calgary Sun, and a 2013 Ford Escape SE AWD, courtesy of the Calgary Herald. Both cars have way too many features to list, so make sure you get your name in the draw!
Calgary's International Auto and Truck Show is one of the largest in western Canada. All the biggest names will be there, so if you have a spouse, child, or friend who loves cars, this is the perfect opportunity to take them out for a great day!
