Every car museum needs a signature event. We put a lot of thought into this over the winter, and decided to combine the beauty of Alaska's endless summer days, the enthusiasm of Alaska's car collectors and the fun of Fairbanks' Summer Solstice events all into one big celebration. Having our car museum situated at a hotel and resort makes it the perfect venue for what we have planned.
Introducing the inaugural Midnight Sun Cruise-In! From June 18-20, you're invited to check out the range of festivities we're organizing at Wedgewood Resort. Besides on-going museum activities (lots of hoods up, scavenger hunts for kids, etc.), weekend highlights will include:
- Friday evening dinner cruise to an authentic Alaska salmon bake
- Saturday car show for vehicles 1980 and older. People's Choice awards will be given in six classes. Free for spectators!
- Saturday evening "Tour de Fairbanks" cruise organized by the Vernon L. Nash Antique Car Club
- Saturday night awards banquet and entertainment
We're offering a discounted rate at Bear Lodge for the weekend and hope many out-of-towners will join us for this car-filled weekend. Visit our web page at http://www.fountainheadhotels.com/auto and scroll to the bottom for more information about the Cruise-In.
Please tell us how you feel about this new event. Suggestions are welcome too!
