Headline Goes Here

DETROIT - The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) attracted more than 100,000 people for the second consecutive day, marking a strong opening weekend for the 2014 show.

On Sunday 102,115 people attended the show, according to NAIAS Chairman Bob Shuman. The two-day total slightly bests the combined first and second day numbers from 2013.

"The cars are fantastic, the exhibits are works of art, and the weather cooperated," said Shuman. "The real beneficiaries are the people who made it to the show this weekend. They experienced the absolute best that a healthy auto industry has to offer."

The enthusiasm was evident on the show floor as moms, dads and kids gazed at, sat in, and photographed what Detroit's world stage had to offer.

"Exhibits, designed to educate, entertain and amaze feature more interactive events than at any other NAIAS," added Shuman. "The Detroit show has become a sensory extravaganza with spectacular new vehicles at the center of it all."

NAIAS continues through Sunday, Jan. 26. Public show ticket prices: Adults: $13; Seniors: $7 (65 and older); Children 7 - 12: $7 (6 and under free when accompanied by a parent or guardian). For show hours and more information, visit naias.com.
