During the week prior to the main event, the excitement builds as Tune-up Parties rev up on successive days around the county. Attractions and activities vary by location, but include parties with a 50’s, 60’s, or 70’s theme, concessions, vendors, live music, dancing in the streets, and giveaways. Friday's festivities will begin at the A-1 Treat Barn, 8541 Miller Rd. at Seymour Rd. in Swartz Creek (formerly the DQ) from 3:00-5:00 pm. T-shirt tickets will be distributed at 4:15 pm. Food and drink specials will be offered for purchase. Parking is available on the grass behind the building by the water tower, and in the parking lot. The party moves from Swartz Creek to the Flushing A, 200 S. Cherry Street from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm with DJ Bob Steel spinning the "oldies." T-shirts will be distributed in Flushing by ELGA Credit Union from 7:00 to 7:30 pm. Back to the Bricks shirts and merchandise available in both Swartz Creek and Flushing.
