The Faribault Main Street organization, under the umbrella of the Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism announced they are excited for the return of Downtown Car Cruises the third Friday of each month starting Friday, May 21, 2021.

The first event will be a "Cruise-In."  Car Cruises feature classic vehicles parked along Central Avenue in the heart of Faribault, Mn.  By popular demand one of the cruises will utilize last year's actual cruising the area around Faribault.

Car Cruises have been happening in Faribault for over a decade.  The cruises will occur weather permitting through September.

Hours are 6:00 p.m to 9:00 p.m. specifcally located in the 200, 300, 400 blocks of Central Avenue.  The best price you can find.  Free!

From Model A's and Model T's to classic Corvettes and Mustangs.  It's a trip down memory lane for everyone because you always remember your first vehicles or your parent's vehicle when you were young.

There will be music downtown courtesy of a DJ.  Food trucks will have items available.  There are some great eating establishments in downtown Faribault to enjoy also.
