Auto shows are the safest places to practice pretend engine noises without attracting lawn mowers in heat. Rev up with today's Groupon to the Green Day Car Show at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline on Monday, October 10 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Brookline residents and children younger than 6 get in free, and guests who ride their bikes to the event get half off their regular admission. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get admission for four (up to a $40 value).
- For $25, you get admission for six (up to a $60 value).
On Columbus Day, the Green Day Car Show celebrates and promotes earth-healthy lifestyles by welcoming swarms of local motorists to show off their eco-conscious rides. Drivers will gather to show off their grease-, electricity-, and sun-powered buggies alongside other forms of transportation that support the environment. Quartets and sextets can enjoy all-day access to family-friendly games and live science demonstrations on ways to be more energy efficient, such as using natural sunlight instead of switching on lamps or eating extraspicy food to regulate body temperature in lieu of central heating. Multiple vendors will enlighten guests between seminars with products that facilitate green living and driving, and food stations will fill up soul sedans running on empty. Attendees also receive access to the Larz Anderson Auto Museum, home to America’s oldest car collection and a vehicular hot spot for the car-collecting community. Based in an exquisite manse built to resemble the French Château de Chaumont-Sur-Loire, the museum shelters dazzling exhibits and a fleet of ageless machines, ranging from 1920s jalopies to modern Formula One racers to foot-powered fossils unearthed by cartoon archaeologists.
