King Kong of Car Shows: KongFusion 2014

Via Wikipedia

There's a thing about car shows: A lot of the time, people think you have to be obsessed with trannys and motors to be included in the fun. But sometimes a car show comes around that has so much more than vehicular jargon that it's almost a waste to look at the cars ... but you do anyways. So if you like cars, or tolerate them, head over to the KongFusion Car Show & Tattoo Expo at Santa Ana Star Center (3001 Civic Center NE) in Rio Rancho for this three-day extravaganza featuring a bikini contest, a burnout contest, games such as Car Limbo and Car Glow, and cash prizes. That's just the tip of the motor, so to speak.

There will also be live music, and by that, we mean rap stars Chamillionaire and Paul Wall, and industrial rock group Powerman 5000. If that's not enough to rev your engine, I don't know what is. The event starts tomorrow at 6pm and continues on Saturday, Sept. 6, and Sunday, Sept. 7, at 11am. Tickets go for $5 (kids), $15 (adults) and three-day passes for $30. Showcasing the “finest and loudest rides in New Mexico,” this should be a memorable outing. Santa Ana Star Center, Rio Rancho • Fri Sep 5 • 6-10pm • $5-$30 • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar
