Two Epic Car Shows Rev into the Great Las Vegas Taco Festival Weekend
Las Vegas isn’t just about the glittering casinos and vibrant nightlife. Car enthusiasts were set for a thrill ride in November 2022 as the Great Las Vegas Taco Festival at Craig Ranch Park hosts not just one, but two adrenaline-pumping car shows. And what’s better than classic cars, lowriders, 4×4’s, mini trucks and more plus tantalizing tacos to spice up your weekend?
Cars & Tacos – A Melting Pot of Automotive Prowess
On Saturday, November 5, 2022, gearheads will gather for Cars & Tacos presented by 360 Car Shows. If you think you’ve seen all there is in the world of cars, think again! From sleek imports and roaring domestics to elegant euros, this event promises a platter of vehicular delights. Truck lovers? You’re in for a treat too! Showcasing both lifted and stylishly lowered trucks along with the often underappreciated mini trucks, this event is the talk of the town.
But it’s not just about flaunting; it’s about celebrating. With over 40 classes participating, there are a whopping 120 awards up for grabs. Teams should be ready for some intense competition as the stakes are high: a cool $250 is set aside for the team that shows the most spirit, deemed the “largest team participation”. But the spectacle that has everyone buzzing? The Truck Bed Dancing contest with a cash prize of $500!
Day at the Park Car Show – A Trip Down Memory Lane
As if Saturday wasn’t revved up enough, Sunday, November 6, 2022, brings another spectacle for the vintage souls. Day at the Park Car Show is where the past meets the present. An array of classic cars that encapsulate decades of design evolution will be on display. Those with a penchant for raw and rustic will love the rat rods segment. Plus, in an elite showdown, the event will host a lowrider invitational.
This isn’t just a showcase; it’s a competition. The top 50 awards will celebrate the crème de la crème of classic vehicles. As for the showstoppers, brace yourselves for the car hopping contest. Participants will vie in three tantalizing categories: Radical, Street, and Modified, with $500 cash prizes on the line, and a whopping $500 up for grabs for the “best of show” award.
