REDDING, Calif., Dec. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Redding, CA takes classic and vintage cars very seriously, especially when it comes to the 27th Annual Kool April Nights, April 16 – 24, 2016, offering miles of vintage cars and more events throughout the city. Held at the Redding Civic Auditorium, this annual event is one of the largest classic car festivals in California, drawing thousands of cars from around the United States and Canada. Just two hours north of Sacramento and three hours northeast of San Francisco, Redding is the hub city of Shasta Cascade and is ground zero for this spectacular 9-day event, with concerts, food, dances, and an exciting citywide Friday Nite Cruise that launches the festivities. This big event offers so many "show and shines" that every parking lot in town is loaded with vintage beauties – from 1979 and older – for the public to admire and envy.
"Kool April Nights is a huge celebration that offers something for every member of the family, especially those who are interested in vintage and classic cars," says Kallie Markle, Communications Coordinator for the Redding Convention and Visitors Bureau. "Every year, this 5,000+ person party launches Redding into spring with a huge bang."
The Friday Nite Cruise is free to all spectators. The sidewalks start filling early in the day, as thousands bring their lawn chairs and cameras out to stake a good vantage point before the cruise begins. When it does, custom hot rods and restored classics take over, circling central Redding and showing off their brilliant paint jobs, vintage good looks, and creative restorations.
Throughout the week, the "Mega Tent" outside the Redding Civic Auditorium will host special concerts. Online registration is now open for those who want to show off their classic car during Kool April Nites.
Redding is the place for exciting adventure all year long for trail seekers, paddling enthusiasts, art lovers, and fans of everything outdoors, but in April, it's all about classic and vintage cars!
