Cars3 Road to the Races Denver Tour Stop

We are so excited about the new Cars 3 movie, coming out in June!

The first two were big favorites when my kids were younger and we have to watch the third.  We're also very happy to be taking part in the Road to the Races Nationwide Tour in Denver, May 27 and 28, at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Littleton.

Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” Road to the Races, a nationwide tour inviting fans of #95 to gear up for the upcoming big-screen release, is coming to Denver for two days only! Life-size, character look-alikes of five-time Piston-Cup champion Lightning McQueen, tech-savvy trainer Cruz Ramirez and the sleek next-gen racer Jackson Storm will be rolling in to Alamo Drafthouse Cinema at Aspen Grove to set up shop Memorial Day Weekend - Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28.

This free and open to the public event includes a variety of activities for a really fun, family-friendly interactive experience throughout the day. Fans will be able to catch a sneak peek of the movie in the Cinetransformer Mobile Movie Theater and visitors will also be able to take photos with the life-size character cars. Additionally, a host of sponsors on-site will provide a load of different stations including a street art booth, tire changing activities, digital postcards for photo sharing, an interactive Mattel play area and so much more.
