Kool April Nites has been a decades-long staple of entertainment in Redding California. Featuring an exciting myriad of vintage and classic cars on display from Model Ts to Hotrods, Kool April Nites really is a “must-see” event here in Redding.
Many of the vehicles on display have been meticulously built, rebuilt, overhauled, restored or modified by their meticulous owners. Each vehicle is sure to impress as most of the vehicles are offered up to view by non-dealer private owners that take great pride in their classic car. You’re not simply viewing someone’s car, but in fact appreciating a work of art.
Win-River Resort & Casino is also getting in on the classic car fun! On Sunday April 19th we will be holding our official “Show and Shine” event located in the Win-River Resort & Casino parking lot. We encourage participants to bring their classic car and show it off to the crowd. The crowd favorite will win $50 in Free Slot Play (and of course bragging rights as well). We will have a DJ setup to play all of your favorite oldies hits and will offer a hotdog, chips and a soda free of charge to those that bring a classic car ($5 for spectators).
This year’s Kool April Nites will feature Dennis Gage, creator and host of the popular TV show, “My Classic Car”. He will be participating in the Friday night Cruise and be at the main event Car Show on Saturday at the Redding Civic Auditorium.
Classic car models span generations from the 20s to the 70s, and the interest in classic cars spans generations as well. Young and old alike, everyone loves a fun or great looking car. Kook April Nites offers best-in-show rewards for participants bringing and registering their classic vehicle to show off and also offers raffle ticket prizes to spectators as well.
The event takes place from April 18th through the 26th with the main car show taking place Saturday, April 25th at the Redding Civic Auditorium. A full listing of events, times and details can be found on the Kool April Nites website located here. Concerts take place nightly in the MegaTent so be sure to check the schedule for specifics.
Be sure to visit the 26th annual Kool April Nites classic car event held on the grounds of the Redding Convention Center, at Park Marina & Auditorium Drive. And if you plan on bringing your souped-up classic Mustang, register your vehicle here. Or pack your family into the Astro van for a fun local getaway, either way you’re going to have a fun time!
