9 a.m., State Fairgrounds. Free.


Circle the date, grease monkeys. After culminating in Little Rock last year, the Hot Rod Power Tour kicks off this year with more than 4,000 hot rods, classic cars, low riders and muscle cars streaming into the Arkansas State Fairgrounds on Saturday. Locals who want to join the fray can register, regardless of make or model, on-site for $80 or beforehand for $65. The festivities run until 6 p.m. If that sounds hot and dusty and smog-filled, you can catch a slice of car culture on Friday night, as a parade of hot rods and other souped-up rides make their way from the fairgrounds to the River Market. From 6 p.m. until 10 p.m., the cars will be there for the gawking. Local cover act Crisis! will perform.
