Mecum Kissimmee, the world’s largest collector car auction, is back for its 15th year with 3,500 vehicles for auction at Osceola Heritage Park.

The 10-day event will also feature road art for auction, plus guitars, motorcycles, boats and more through Jan. 12. More than 100,000 people are expected to attend and total sales could top last year’s record $107.5 million.

Although collector cars are the highlights of the Kissimmee auction, Mecum isn’t just an affair for top-dollar bidders. Individuals and families can attend for $30 per person to enjoy the event’s offerings, which include everything from live music to Dodge Thrill Rides to road art.

“This has grown into not only the largest collector car auction, but it’s an event that happens to have an auction,” said Dave Magers, Mecum’s CEO. “Bring the kids out, talk to them about history through cars. See over 3,000 really cool cars and then do some of the other fun stuff while you’re here.”
