There are over 20 categories available to enter and the registration form can be downloaded here. Registration begins at 10:00 a.m. and judging begins at 12:00 p.m. by the North Texas Street Cars Association. Miss Texas local titleholders will be our special guests to present trophies at 1:30 p.m. Each car registered sponsors one Haltom City student for the Back to School Health Fair.
Carfest will also have loads of free kids activities including inflatables, a petting zoo, temporary tattoos, a balloon twister, games, crafts, free goodie bags (while they last) and a special visit from the Easter Bunny. The Haltom City Police Department will be hosting a bike safety rodeo, as well as having some of their vehicles on display.
