Everything We Saw at Cincinnati's 60th-Annual Cavalcade of Customs

The Cavalcade of Customs has been showcasing custom cars, hotrods, motorcycles and trucks for auto enthusiasts in Greater Cincinnati (both casual and hardcore) for 60 years now. The popular, family-friendly car-con returned to the Duke Energy Convention Center this year with its usual mix of automotive coolness and pop culture figures. Officially dubbed the “KOI Federated Auto Parts Cavalcade of Customs presented by Maxmotive,” the 60th-annual event featured displays spotlighting Sprint racing and drag racing cars from throughout time, Rockabilly bands, a “pin-up girl” contest and a “pedal car challenge.” Celebrities that attended this year’s Cavalcade of Customs for meet-and-greets/autograph signings include NASCAR star Kyle Busch, WWE star Seth Rollins, custom car builder and Discovery Channel favorite Aaron Kaufman and the one and only Spider-Man.
