Downtown hosting Michigan International Auto Show
If you’re looking for a new car, or if you just like to look, the Michigan International Auto Show is for you.
The 21st-annual show is bringing hundreds of new vehicles — sedans, trucks, SUVs, crossovers, hybrids and luxury vehicles — to DeVos Place in downtown Grand Rapids, at 303 Monroe St. NE.
The event runs from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. tomorrow and Friday, 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
Attendees can sit inside the vehicles, as well as hear about the latest trends in performance, technology, security and eco-friendly features.
The Toyota Drive Center will give visitors a chance to get behind the wheel of select vehicles and take them for a spin around downtown.
