The free, public event is an expansion of the college’s popular annual Car and Motorcycle Show, which featured nearly 500 vehicles last year. New activities include demonstrations and interactive displays by Baker College students, community arts and crafts booths, and a kids’ zone with a bounce house. There is still time for arts and crafts vendors to reserve free booth space.

“We are opening the doors to everything Baker College offers the community and inviting area residents to showcase their arts and crafts talent and their unique vehicles,” said Wen Hemingway, MBA, CTP, Baker College of Flint president. “It will be a fun-filled day that offers entertaining, interesting and helpful things to do and see.”

Phillip Whitmer, Baker College of Flint dean of transportation technology, said the record-breaking crowds that have attended previous Baker College Car and Motorcycle shows will have even more to see and do this year.

For those who want to show their car or motorcycle, free registration is onsite 9 a.m. to noon. The first 100 entries will receive dash plaques, goodie bags and lunch vouchers. Awards are for the top 25 cars/trucks, top 10 motorcycles, President’s and Dean’s awards for both categories, and Best of Show, as well as recognition for car clubs that exhibit.

In addition to vendors of automotive-related items, food and drink will be available and a disc jockey will provide music.

To reserve space for car clubs and vendors, contact showinfo@baker.edu or 810.766.2263.
