Children are encouraged to find their inner engineer at The Washington Auto Show: “Change Happens Here.”


Four drawings throughout the day on Saturday, Jan. 30, will award 48 lucky kids the chance to trick out their very own RIDEMAKERZ car with staff on site to help them craft a wow-worthy ride.

“The Washington Auto Show is, and always has been, a family show,”  said Charles Stringfellow, chairman of The Washington Auto Show and president and CEO of Brown Automotive Group. “Our partnership with Automotive Rhythms provides a great opportunity for children to unleash their creativity and for families to enjoy the fun of building model cars together.”

“Along with the cool gadgets and accessories, this special promotion with RIDEMAKERZ offers kids a terrific opportunity for education and exploration,” said Kimatni Rawlins, president of Automotive Rhythms, a multinational lifestyle firm that blends evaluations of the latest cars, trucks, SUVs and bikes around music, fashion, travel and technology.
