I know, it's Easter Weekend. But let's take advantage of fun holiday weekend, by walking around with a "Hood's Up Weekend" checking out some NICE looking Classic Cars!!
They also have a scavenger hunt tailored especially for kids where they have to read the car information plaques and watch the videos to find the answers. It's really fun.!.
