Redding, Calif.-- Launched in 1989 when a bunch of car lovers wanted to have an event to get together and celebrate their beloved cars, the Kool April Nites isn't just for participant car owners. The public can also come on Saturday for the Show and Shine, or watch the car parade as it passes on its route on Friday night. 

Great cars, music,  food, bobby sox and ponytails are perfectly OK at this event.  You'll find: * Miles of Classic Cars * Show and Shines * Trophies * Food * Music * Dances... and more fun than two people in a rumble seat at the drive-in.

Car show with 68 car prize categories that include Most Bitchin, Kool Deuce, Pro Street Pick, Mighty Mustang, Street Sweeper, Chick's Choice and many more at the Redding Convention Center includes miles of Classic Cars, great food, concerts every night in the Big Tent beginning Wednesday.

* Cruise permit - so you can show off your wheels on Northern California's Best Cruise; that traverses Hilltop Dr., Dana Drive, Churn Creek Road and Cypress Avenue. No, its not a parade its a genuine "Cruise", blocked off to local traffic.
*Show and Shine Passes - so you can check out the other entries and enjoy the food and entertainment.
* Concerts every night starting Thursday in the Big Tent and running through Saturday night. Enjoy that trip down memory lane with our 50's,60', and 70's music.

Kool April Nites is a non-profit organization that is staffed by over 500 volunteers and donates all its proceeds to local organizations dedicated to children's education. We are not associated with any other vehicle shows in Northern California.
