All the proceeds from CARFEST raise money to purchase new school supplies for Haltom City students in Birdville Independent School District (BISD) for the 2018-2019 school year.
CARFEST welcomes car, truck and motorcycle collectors and enthusiasts to showcase their ride for everyone to see and swoon over. Registering to show your car, truck or motorcycle is $25 and includes an event t-shirt and a 2018 CARFEST commemorative dash plate. There are over 20 categories available to enter. The registration form is available for download below. Judging by the North Texas Street Cars Association (Facebook page) begins at noon with the awards ceremony taking place at 1:30 p.m. Each car registered sponsors one Haltom City student for the Refresh BISD Back to School Health Fair.
CARFEST has loads of free kids activities like inflatables, a petting zoo, face painting and temporary tattoos, balloon twisters, crafts, free goodie bags (while supplies last) and a special visit from the Easter Bunny. The Haltom City Police Department will be hosting a bike safety rodeo and will have some of their vehicles on display. The Haltom City Fire/Rescue will have their fire extinguisher simulator and some of their rescue vehicles and fire engine on display. Our CERT team will have their Fire Safety Smoke House for kids and adults on site, teaching what to do in case of a fire in your home. We will also have concessions available for purchase and the Fire Services Board will be there popping fresh popcorn.
CARFEST is a fundraiser for Refresh BISD Back to School Health Fair. During Refresh, there will be backpacks, school supplies, haircuts, eye exams, hot dogs, helpful resources, and a time of fun. Refresh aims to help get students ready for school, families connected with the community, and people transforming their cities.
