DETROIT (WXYZ) - The 25th anniversary of the North American International Auto Show drew larger opening weekend crowds than last year, bringing in 208,675 visitors to Cobo Hall.
According to NAIAS Chairman Bob Shuman, 102,115 people attended Sunday, which means that over 106,000 attended the show's opening day.
"The cars are fantastic, the exhibits are works of art, and the weather cooperated," Shuman said.
The show will be packed with students on Wednesday, as the NAIAS is hosting Education Day, and be sure to join all of us at WXYZ for Channel 7 Family day on Friday January 24. The family day event runs from 12 p.m.-9 p.m.
The auto show runs until Sunday January 26, and tickets are $13 for adults, $7 for seniors 65 and older and children ages 7-12, and kids 6 and under are free.
