This year’s show has a few new things to reveal; but, for the most part, it’s all about the everyday bread and butter of the automotive world. offers more than scoping out hot, luxury rides. Check out the virtual reality experiences and driving demos, or maybe gather some friends and partake of the Snapchat Scavenger Hunt. Friday marks Telemundo Hispanic Heritage Day and Monday, Presidents’ Day (the show’s final day) caters specifically to families. $13, $7 for seniors and children ages 7-12 (6 and under are free).
