The event was designed to celebrate the things we love. If you enjoy driving your car through back country roads and visiting interesting shops, museums, restaurants, and parks, then you should enjoy this event. This is not a race – just a group of automobile enthusiasts spending the day with each other and their cars.

There will be people who have volunteered to follow the route behind the last car to ensure that if there is a break down, the passengers are safe and have a plan. We will help in any way that we can, however we are not offering towing services.
