The weather this weekend has been amazing, and even though its only April, it has me excited for summer and the fun activities that come with it. One of those is the Faribault Main Street Car Cruises. I’ve started seeing people slowly pull their pride and joy vehicles out of the garage and onto the roads, and I'm hoping to see a lot o them at the kick off night is set for May 19!

Last year the car cruises has 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 was 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 great variety of cars. This year’s car cruise dates are May 19, June 16, July 21 and Aug. 18. 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 Power 96’s 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 19. Hope to see you there!
