Back to the Bricks Cancels Downtown Flint Summer Activities
The August 20th version of Back to The Bricks is going to look a heck of a lot different compared to years past due to the coronavirus pandemic.
According to ABC12, organizers have canceled the car show and most other events in downtown Flint for this year's event. But they hope to return bigger and better for the 2021 Back to the Bricks.
The following Back to the Bricks events will not happen in 2020:
- Rolling Cruise on Saginaw Street and the companion Mega Site.
- Hot Dog Lunch.
- Classic Car Lot.
- Opening Ceremony.
- The live concert in downtown Flint will be replaced by a special presentation airing on ABC12 on Aug. 14.
We did not come at this decision quickly, and it is not easy navigating through these unprecedented times, but although we are cutting back on some of our normal activities, we are adding a few new things to enhance this years’ experience and make it safer for everyone. We know that many will be disappointed with the changes that we need to make, but we hope it is understood that the Back to the Bricks organization puts the safety of everyone above and beyond anything else.
Other activities that will still be happening this summer include a second Road Rally, Tune-Up Week will switch to drive-thru activities in various towns, and the annual movie at U.S. 23 Drive-In is changing to the "Drive-thru at the Drive-In."
