The Colorado Springs Auto Show will be at the World Arena, April 15-17.

More than 200 new cars and trucks will be displayed. In its 37th year, the auto show includes two dozen manufacturers showcasing hybrid and electric cars and vehicles with updated consumer safety, efficiency and comfort.

In 1974, the first auto show was only for one evening, with 38 vehicles and 300 people. During the past several years, attendance has averaged more than 8,000.

Proceeds from each Springs Auto Show benefit Operation School Bell, which was founded in 1968 and provides children with school clothing in the Pikes Peak region. The operation has clothed more than 70,000 children at a cost of more than $3.2 million.

Admission specials for the auto show include senior citizen day on Friday; family day on Sunday; active military, with up to three family members, free each day; children 12 and younger are free.
