Valley residents can get their cars smog-tested at no charge this Saturday in a clean-air event at the Fresno Fairgrounds.

The Tune In & Tune Up testing offered by the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District and Valley CAN (Clean Air Now) will be from 8 a.m. to noon at the fairgrounds, 1121 S. Chance Ave. in southeast Fresno. To qualify, drivers need to have owned their cars for at least six months. If the vehicle doesn’t pass the test, the owner will get a voucher for smog repairs at a qualifying smog service shop. Drivers are encouraged to arrive early because of limited vehicle capacity, and testing will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

Local community groups will have information booths at the event, and free food and drinks will be provided starting at 9 a.m. while supplies last.

Details: 800-806-2004 or email TITUevent@valley-can.org.
