FLINT (WJRT) - (06/01/17) - The Back to the Bricks main event is still a couple of months away, but Thursday, car enthusiasts picked up their registration packets for the annual Promotional Tour.
The 2017 Heritage Promo tour rolls out of Flint on June 9.
This year's event will make stops in the cities of Clare, Big Rapids, Muskegon, Coldwater and Adrian.
Participants will learn about the history and heritage of each city. Nearly 200 are signed up.
The purpose of the Promo Tour is to drum up excitement for this summer's Back to the Bricks car show and rolling cruise.
“The camaraderie of everybody. We've seen people here come in today that we haven't seen in a year. Now they are all excited to get back together and get back on the road and have five nights away and have a good time with their friends and drive their old cars,” said Pete Cimbala, Promo Tour organizer.
“It's just the friendships with all of the people and meeting new people, it's just a fantastic time. We just love all of it,” Promo Tour organizer.
The six day promo tour runs June 9-14.
ABC12's Matt Franklin will be rolling with the cruise again this year and will have live updates from the route.
