Midnight Sun Cruise-In Classes Announced

by Nancy DeWitt

Summer Solstice is a great time to visit Fairbanks. The fun begins with the Midnight Sun Baseball Game on Thursday, June 21, continues with the Midnight Sun Fun Run on Saturday night and finishes Sunday afternoon with the Midnight Sun Street Fair downtown.

Solstice is also when the farthest north gathering of vintage and classic cars descends upon our fair city. This year the Midnight Sun Cruise-In is set for June 22-24, with most activities based at Wedgewood Resort and the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum.

The Midnight Sun Car Show will take place on June 23 and will include the following classes:
  • Vintage (1949 and older)
  • Classic (1960-1985)
  • Hot Rod/Modified*
  • Motorcycles*
  • Miscellaneous (tractors, military vehicles, boats, etc)*
* must be older than 1986

Special Classes for 2012:

  • 1950s
  • Race Cars

People's Choice awards will be presented for each class. Keep watching our website and Facebook page for updates and registration details. For reservations at the host hotel, Wedgewood Resort, call 1-800-528-4916 and use discount code MIDCR12.
