Riverside Park/ Friday, July 4 – Sunday, July 8

When it comes to classic muscle cars, you'd be hard-pressed to find one more iconic than the Chevrolet Camaro. With its wide nose and characteristic rumble, the Camaro is a symbol of the golden age of the American automotive industry—there's a reason why Michael Bay chose the Camaro as the alter-ego for the heroic Transformer Bumblebee. Every year motor-obsessed Michiganders rollout their Chevys for public display, as well as a judged competition, and this year, the 23rd annual Camaro Superfest comes to Ypsi. Last year's fest brought in over 430 of these high-performance beauties, and this year, the goal is 500.

Show hours run 8am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday. Riverside Park, Ypsilanti. 734-368-8726. camarosuperfest.com Free
