What to Expect at the Cincinnati Auto Expo

We went to the opening night of the Cincinnati Auto Expo.

I’ve got a few tips for you if you are bringing kids.

First, swing by the booth sponsored by Children’s Hospital and find out what type of carseat is the safest for your child.

My oldest is tall enough to not have a booster by the chart’s standards.

Looks like my younger son will be in the booster zone for a while still.

You can also enter to win a brand new car seat.

I suggest visiting the booth with the wheel first. My kids won bouncy balls and were content for the rest of the expo.

Their favorite vehicle was the one with the Cincinnati Bearcats theme.

All of us were fans of the Hamstar and the Mustang pool table.
