I went to the event and enjoyed the kids racing their cars. For next year, I would like to see it more as a family event at the park including hot dogs and hamburgers, snow cones, and ice cream for sale. Also bring in a clown to entertain the kids. Wouldn't it be nice for the kids to have a picnic with their families at the park and watch the cars racing?
