Historic Old US 27 Motor Tour and Clare BrewFest 2012

            “Back in the Day It Was the Way!” The 6th Annual Historic Old US 27 Motor Tour is once again stopping overnight in Clare on Thursday, August 23, 2012! Welcome hundreds of cars as they arrive in town from the roundabout at 6 pm. The cars will travel on McEwan to downtown Clare where they will park overnight on McEwan and Fourth Streets! We encourage you to line the route with signs and cheers of welcome for the tour as they arrive in our community.

Then join us in celebrating the tour stop with an evening of food, fun, live music from Night Shift Band, the Clare Farm & Arts Market in the City Park, and of course – lots and lots of classic cars! The free event will be held in downtown Clare from 6 – 9 p.m.  In addition, the Clare BrewFest will be held on East Fourth Street from 5-10 pm.

To accommodate this all of the cars, traffic on Old 27 will be detoured for two blocks around the event. A map of this route is available online or by calling Clare Main Street.

Join the tour from Clare and bring back the good old days of Michigan as you travel beautiful Historic Old US 27. Hundreds of classic cars are touring August 21-26, 2012 from Auburn, Indiana to Cheboygan, Michigan. This is one of the premier classic car auto events in the state! The seven day tour travels through beautiful scenery, delightful towns, and enjoys stops along the way. This will be super fun and a great way to vacation in your cruiser. This is an ideal club event, family fun, or a friend’s get-together, and will be a great show for years to come!  If you are unable to join the tour but would like to participate in the Thursday night event, we invite you to bring out your classic car to showcase it.
