The Saline Summerfest is not your average backyard barbecue. In addition to the food, games and live music, the fest will feature a 5k run, bike tours, trolley tours and an electric car show, highlighting Saline’s industrial past and looking forward to an eco-friendly future. Historical trolley tours will circle the town, stopping at the Saline Railroad Depot Museum where visitors can learn about 19th century technology and travel, and how the Saline railroad integrated the small town with neighboring cities and helped to boost the economy. At the electric car show, view, test-drive and talk to owners of the latest electric vehicles and celebrate the family-friendly, forward-thinking town of Saline.
