About The Event
In the early 2000s, the idea to have Old U.S. 27 in Michigan become designated as a historic highway got started. In 2010, that dream became a reality as the Michigan House of Representatives passed a resolution sponsored by Lansing Representative Joan Bauer to officially designate the route as a historic highway.
As part of the historic designation of U.S. 27, the vision was to create a Motor Tour along the route from Coldwater to Cheboygan, like the Route 66 experience, driving a piece of US history. So a week-long traveling car show with a police escort from one town to the next was established.
Their week-long traveling car show will overnight in the following cities. Each day has a number of stops and activities planned.
Monday - Coldwater, Cruise-in, Movie at the Capri Drive-in
Tuesday - Coldwater, Lunch, Adventure Zone, Cruse-in
Wednesday - Dewitt, Poker Run, Lunch, depart for Dewitt, Cruise-in
Thursday - Clare, Drivers Mtg, Leave for St John, Cruise-in St Johns, Cruise-in Ithaca, Cruise-in St Louis, Cruise-in Clare
Friday - Grayling, depart Clare, Cruise-in at Harrison & Street Faire, Crusie-in American Legion, Cloggers Performance
Saturday - Cheboygan, Cruise-in Gaylord, Cruise-in Wolverine, Cruise-in Cheboygan
