Organizers announced this week that the annual tour of Michigan drawing interest to Flint's Back to the Bricks festival over the past decade will take place in the fall this year rather than the spring.
The 300 classic vehicles and 600 people who took the five-day trip from Flint to the Upper Peninsula and back dispersed on Wednesday. Their attention now turns to the huge Back to the Bricks festival in August.
Friday night Burton police put their plan into action, as they have every night of Back to the Bricks, at 8:45pm. Their well choreographed routine is part of an effort to ensure that folks enjoy the Back to the Bricks celebrations safely. There was also a heavy police presence in downtown Flint, where the Cruise "N" Concert returned to the delight of music fans. The Motortown All-Stars headlined this year's free concert.
The tour started Friday in Davison, traveled north to Mount Pleasant, Gaylord, Petoskey and across the Mackinac Bridge to St. Ignace before returning south on Tuesday with stops in Alpena and East Tawas.
