Classic Cars

The Columbus International Auto Show is known for the great classic cars on display. Each year over 20 beautiful classics line the hallways of the convention center so you can experience a bit of the past before entering the show to see all the newest models. This year's classics range from a 1964 Pontiac GTO to a 1982 Hurst Olds 442 to the C5R ALMS Corvette - Chassis #9 driven by the one and only Dale Earnhardt Jr.!

Columbus Zoo

Zoo Animals

The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium ranks among the top in the nation, made famous with a lot of help from Columbus-favorite Jungle Jack Hanna. Aiming to lead and inspire, the zoo continues to educate by connecting people to wildlife. They will be bringing an array of creatures to the Auto Show on Saturday and Sunday. Check our schedule for times and be sure to stop by to pet a peguin, sloth, snake, dingo, and other exotic animals!


Matt The Balloon Guy

Matt has been twisting balloons since his freshman year of high school when he went to the library to find 'How To' books on balloon twisting. A quick study, Matt soon started honing his craft at parties and restaurants. Over the years balloons have taken Matt to some pretty exotic locations and events: the Cayman Islands, trade shows in many states, NASCAR races, thousands of locations in and around Ohio, and even a brief stint in Europe - he's done balloons in 24 states and 7 countries! And trust us, this guy can make ANYTHING!
