Summer is coming, the weather is warming up, and I’ve started seeing people slowly pull their pride and joy vehicles out of the garage and onto the roads. Around here, that means the Faribault Main Street Car Cruise Nights are just around the corner! The kick off night is set for May 20!

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 20, June 17, July 15, August 19, and a bonus car cruise on August 27. Whether you are into muscle cars, custom restorations, old trucks, motorcycles, Model A’s, fun details, hood ornaments, tuners or special interest, there is something for everyone. There is also a chance to win prizes, 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 20. Hope to see you there!
