Flying Legends of Victory Tour – July 26th through July 31st
Having spent my fair share of time breaking (I really have a knack for it) and subsequently repairing vintage vehicles, I’m always a bit baffled at how airplanes exist. Particularly vintage airplanes. With this in mind, it is really quite remarkable to get up close to legendary warplanes and see their inner mechanical workings. The Flying Legends of Victory Tour provides such an opportunity and if you’re brave enough to take to the skies in a vintage plane they’ll even take you for a ride in a B-17 Flying Fortress.
We love our sales people at Morrie’s. They’re the reason we can say in business and thrive. Every year, as a group, we like to thank our sales people with a bit party that includes games, food trucks, Heritage car test drives, and prizes to let them know we appreciate their hard work. This year, as a special treat, the top-reviewed sales person from each store got to pick a manager or corporate employee of their choice to hit with a pie in the face! So thanks, sales staff of Morrie’s Auto Group! You’re all the best in the business!
Minneapolis Aquatennial – July 20th through July 23rd
This week the Aquatennial descends on Minneapolis to celebrate the city’s lakes, rivers and streams via 70 plus scheduled activities. I could list them all off here, but it would most definitely mirror that scene in Forrest Gump where Bubba rattles off all the different shrimp dishes. Just take my word for it that there is a multitude of fun events including the Torchlight Parade, waterskiing shows, sand castle contests, fireworks and more.
Victoria Car Show – Wednesday, July 6th
Victoria Classic Car Night is quite possibly the best classic car gathering that very few people know about. This event occurs semi-monthly during the summer months and regularly draws hundreds of cars. The event returns tonight at 5pm and runs until 8pm. Read Josh’s recap from a past visit to get a glimpse of what Victoria Classic Car Night has to offer.
The July MN C&C event is usually hit or miss in terms of attendance depending on when the 4th of July falls during the week. Last year was pretty quiet with lots of people heading to their cabins or being preoccupied with other holiday festivities. This year however, MN C&C had a MASSIVE turnout with over 1,000 cars and roughly 7,000 spectators that showed up! It was simply amazing to see so many cars and people all within the confines of the Auto MotorPlex in Chanhassen. FOX9 news even came out to broadcast live from the show and did a segment with our very own Ben Robertaccio.
We’d like to thank everyone for coming out to MN C&C and making it such a great event this month and we hope you enjoy your 4th of July weekend safely!
