This is your last weekend for the 2012 Washington Auto Show at the Washington Convention Center at 801 Mount Vernon Place NW, and the show has many activities scheduled for the weekend. I know it’s Super Bowl weekend and you are probably getting ready for The Game. But if you happen to find a couple of hours, it is always entertaining to check out the few concept models that do make it to DC… and jump in and out of the model of your choice.
There are more than 700 cars in the show from 32 manufacturers, domestic and foreign, and there are some new hybrids and electric models. You can check out Dodge’s new Dart, Ford’s new Fusion among many other new models. My favorite: Fiat has a course were you can drive the 500 on site.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for children ages 6 to 12. The hours this weekend are Saturday, February 4 from 10 am to 10 pm, and Sunday, February 5 from 10 am to 6 pm. The show is open tonight, Friday, February 3, until 10 pmm.
Neighbor Julie on Corcoran alerted us to a TV spot, “Safe. Greener. Smarter. Cleaner.” that promotes the 2010 Washington Auto Show©, which was shot last fall on the 1500 block of Corcoran Street. Julie says she saw the ad earlier this week on Comedy Central–can you find her in the spot? In addition, the Auto Show has behind the scenes photos on its Facebook Page The Auto Show is January 27-30 at the DC Convention Center.
