This year marks the 110th edition of the Chicago Auto Show ( #ChiAutoShow ), which runs through Feb. 19 at McCormick Place. First staged in 1901, the Chicago Auto Show is the largest auto show in North America and has been held more times than any other auto exposition on the continent.
In all, nearly 1,000 different vehicles ( covering more than 1 million square feet ) will be on display during this year's event. The Chicago Auto Show features hundreds of interactive booths, accessories and auto-related exhibits, competition vehicles, three driving/riding tracks, and antique and collector cars.
The annual First Look for Charity took place Feb. 9. It was expected to raise more than $2.5 million annually to benefit 18 local charities. Attendees had a chance to win a 2018 Ford Mustang or Expedition.
Admission is $13 for adults, $7 for seniors age 62 and older as well as children ages 7-12, and free for children age up to 6.
