Auto shows are the safest places to practice pretend engine noises without attracting feral lawn mowers in heat. Rev up with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two tickets to the Saint Louis Auto Show at the America's Center and Edward Jones Dome, redeemable Thursday, January 27 through Sunday, January 30 (up to a $20 value). More than 500 new cars, trucks, SUVs, and concept vehicles from more than 25 manufacturers strut their stuff at the largest auto-centric gala in the St. Louis area. The EcoCity area emphasizes conservation, recycling, and clean energy, and features an indoor track eager to kiss the tires of electric and hybrid cars on test drives. Protective force fields shield Bugatti, Lamborghini, Bentley, Maserati, and Rolls Royce displays from drool contamination at the Million Dollar Mile area, and specialists such as Toyota, Kia, Chevrolet, Buick, and GMC quench further accelerative urges with complimentary test drives. Friday is Ladies' Day at the auto show and includes free massages, music, fashion shows, and a runway show featuring local firefighters. Children younger than 6 are admitted free, and you can check the schedule for daily hours of operation.
Saint Louis Auto Show
Smoke blasts from the wheels of a powerful Mustang as professional driver Vaughn Gittin Jr. drifts his screeching muscle car around a tight bend. The car glides and slides across an outdoor parking lot at the Saint Louis Auto Show, while inside, pint-sized guests guide cars through a remote-controlled NASCAR racetrack. Guests can explore a showroom floor of more than 500 vehicles, including top of the line cars, trucks, and SUVs from Chrysler, Cadillac, Toyota, Jeep, and more. The show’s Million Dollar Mile flaunts exotic rides from Maserati, Lamborghini, and Bentley, while the EcoCity area showcases cutting edge electric vehicles. The four day event also features the Pistons and Pearls charity gala, where guests don their finest duds while enjoying unlimited food and drink and vie for a chance to slow dance with St. Louis’ most eligible steering wheels.
