Hearts racing

. September 25, 2012.

Fresh on the heels of our Bicentennial celebration, Findlay gets to be a part of another great tradition, as the Great Race comes through town on Saturday, June 30. Run yearly since 1983, the Great Race is a classic car rally held over two weeks and spanning a healthy portion of the country. The route is different every year, but this year’s is nicely situated right here in the Midwest, beginning in Traverse City, Michigan and finishing in Dearborn (only two days after the Findlay stop). The race is open to cars built before the 1970’s, but will feature vehicles going back to the dawn of the automotive age. Come downtown from 4-8pm and see all the great old vehicles, while you sample some local food and fun. There’s even hot air balloon rides! It’s a good-old-fashioned American good time, just in time for Independence Day.
