One harbinger of spring is the Cleveland Auto Show, held Feb. 22 to March 3 at the spacious I-X Center. This annual show began in 1903 with 15 Cleveland-made automobiles. In fact, Cleveland was considered the first Motor City until 1908, when Detroit took center stage.
The auto show now has 1.2 million square feet of exhibits with car makers from around the world and attracts thousands of new-car shoppers. There are car giveaways, Millionaire’s Row and a classic car competition. You can also take cars out for a test drive. It’s a perfect family outing.
