Car toys on tour
The Hot Wheels Legends Tour will be rolling into Everett from 8 a.m. to noon today at the Walmart Supercenter, 11400 Highway 99.
The traveling show will have cars big and small, plus games for kids and prizes. Get a close look at a fleet of Hot Wheels life-size vehicles from the Hot Wheels garage.
The free event is one of 18 stops across the country, as Mattel searches for the next great custom hot rod to turn into next year’s featured Hot Wheels die-cast toy car of the year. The winner of Saturday’s event will advance to the SEMA Auto Show in Las Vegas later this year, where their life-size custom car will compete against all tour winners.
