Topeka, Kan. – Washburn Tech is adding a few bells and whistles to its annual Car Show from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. on Friday, May 8, on the Washburn Tech campus at 5724 S.W. Huntoon St. The public is invited.
Auto enthusiasts will enjoy the five show entry classes: custom/low riders, antique cars and trucks, muscle cars, motorcycles and special interest. New attractions, for everyone to enjoy, include numerous food trucks and a live band. The event will continue its tradition of a carnival atmosphere including a climbing wall, a car bash, a heavy equipment rodeo and even 3 vs. 3 basketball.
The Car Show is an annual fundraiser benefitting the Care Closet, a Washburn Tech organization providing short-term financial assistance to Washburn Tech students who need help to complete their education. Aid can take the form of gas money, bus fare or a bag of groceries.
