‘Cars 3’ cars come to life as tour heads to Pittsburgh’s SouthSide Works

| Monday, April 24, 2017 12:21 p.m
'Road to the Races' tour brings life-size replicas of the cars from 'Cars 3' to the SouthSide Works on April 26.

Fans of the “Cars” movie series can rev their engines as the “Road to the Races” interactive tour roars into SouthSide Works, 425 Cinema Drive, Pittsburgh, on April 26.

The stop is one of 26 being made across the country in advance of the Disney-Pixar film “Cars 3” opening in theaters on June 16.

The event, from noon to 5 p.m., invites fans to participate in various activities and get a sneak peek at the movie. A street art booth will feature Lightning McQueen and friends in a giant coloring mural, including colored pencil pack souvenirs.

Visitors to a racer pit crew station can take part in a tire-changing activity and photo opportunity. Fans can create a digital postcard with Lightning McQueen and receive dental care products with a “Cars” theme.

And an interactive play area will send Lightning McQueen and others racers down a gravity drop and launch them into action in new play sets featuring movie locations. A collection of die cast racers from past and present will be on display.

A movie preview will be held in the Cinetransformer Mobile Movie Theater, and fans can pose for pictures with their favorite, life-size character cars.

NASCAR’s sports national youth program, Acceleration Nation, will display the science behind NASCAR racing, and attendees can check out elements from the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

The tour is open to the public at no charge. Final entry is 4 p.m.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
