As people slowly pull their pride and joy vehicles out of the garage and onto the roads, and Faribault Main Street Downtown Car Cruise organizers are preparing for the season kickoff on May 18!
The last several years, the car cruises have seen record numbers of vehicles, the Fleck’s beer delivery truck, which is currently undergoing restorations, the U of M Formula SAE vehicle and the U of M Solar vehicle, plus of course, a great selection of cars, trucks, and motorcycles. It is a great combination of history, innovation, and style all in one place.
Every third Friday of the month during summer, Faribault Main Street hosts a Car Cruise Night bringing in a wide array of cars. This year’s car cruise dates are May 18, June 15, July 20, Aug. 17, and September 21. Whether you are into muscle cars, custom restorations, old trucks, motorcycles, Model As, fun details, hood ornaments, tuners or special interest, there is something for everyone. There is also a chance to win prizes, grab a bite to eat, and Mike Eiler can be found playing music on Central Avenue as people stroll and take in the amazing cars parked in downtown Faribault.
It’s always a fun evening, and the cars that people bring are rare, interesting showpieces. Some vehicles make repeat appearances throughout the summer, but there are also new cars and trucks to check out. The first car cruise of the season will take place on May 18. Hope to see you there!
