Pittsburgh car fans rev up for annual auto show

January 30, 2014 by  

The Pittsburgh International Auto Show is returning to the city for four days this February. This year’s theme is “South Beach.”

A “Red Carpet Charity Preview Gala” will give many people the chance to get a sneak peek at the show while raising money for charity. Guests can attend a cocktail reception with Mario Lemieux and his wife Nathalie where they will enjoy free champagne, appetizers and prize draws. They will also be able to dance to live music. Proceeds from the gala will go to the Mario Lemieux Foundation’s Austin’s Playroom Project.

Those who attend the show will find plenty of the latest and upcoming car models on display. There will also be a miniature NASCAR race track, a racing simulator, a custom car area and a golf cart exhibit. In addition, there will be giveaways and raffles. Organizers will also be holding a blood drive during the second last day of the show.

This event should have something to offer everyone no matter what their tastes are. Guests will no doubt attend from nearby communities such as North Versailles. Local print shops may be asked to provide banner printing to help exhibitors and attendees alike.

The Pittsburgh International Auto Show will be held at the David Lawrence Convention Center from February 14 to 17. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for seniors and military personnel. Tickets to the Red Carpet Charity Preview gala, which will take place on February 13 from 6:00 – 11:00 PM, are $250 each or $2,250 for a table of 10.
