PROMO TOUR 2021
June 4 – 9, 2021
Each June, the Promo Tour ushers in a summer of cruising and car shows, and offers an opportunity for adventure and camaraderie to hundreds of classic car owners. The five-day tour has a dual purpose: (1) to promote Back to the Bricks®, and generate excitement for the August “Main Event” in downtown Flint, and (2) to showcase the unique features and boost the economy of each of the host cities selected for the Tour.
Thanks to the efforts of Co-Chairs Pete Cimbala and Rhonda Rau and their committee, the 2021 VISIONARY PROMO TOUR was a record-breaking phenomenal experience!!! They visited several cities around the state of Michigan and the feedback was outstanding. The fun began on Friday, June 4th, 2021 with Tour Kick-Off Event, corner of Linden and Corunna in the old VG’s Plaza (parking lot just west of Burger King off Corunna).
The itinerary included an overnight stay on June 4th in Mt. Pleasant and then two nights (June 5th and 6th) in Boyne City and the surrounding area with a car show at Classic Instruments on Saturday, and the Main Event Downtown on Sunday. From Boyne City, the Tour traveled to Cadillac on June 7th and Muskegon on June 8th. Long-hauler awards for participants who visit every city were passed out on Tuesday evening in Muskegon at the conclusion of the car event. St. Johns, was the last stop on June 9 on the tour. This was an opportunity to stretch their legs and enjoy coffee and doughnuts before heading home thus concluding the 11th Annual Promo Tour.
The $45.00 Registration Fee included: 2 T-shirts, 2 Name Lanyards, a Participant Window Cling, Participant Window Card, Goodie Bag, Tour Book, Free Breakfast on the day of departure, and several other discounts and perks.
