Today’s highlights will be on the West Coast, Southwest, and Midwest.
Picture This Wisconsin Car Rally
October 15-November 30, Madison, WI
A 135-mile, 5 hour car rally through the countryside of southern Wisconsin. Not only will you drive through picturesque landscapes, but you’ll also have the chance to a $250 cash prize. What’s nice about this rally is that it does begin on October 15, but you have until November 30 to turn in your times. For more details on all the rules and the app needed, you can visit the site here. A portion of the funds go to a local animal rescue organization. This would make a great trip for any car-ride loving canines!

Creepy Cars and Coffee – Murphys Auto Museum

Tucson Classics Car Show
October 15, Tucson, AZ
If you live in the desert, you know this is truly one of the best weather times of the year. We’ve got temperatures in the mid/upper 90s and it just makes being outside, especially for a car event, much more enjoyable. This is the 16th annual event and looks to have a great line up of activities, prizes, and events for attendees.
Kingman Route 66 Fest
October 14-15, Kingman, AZ
One more local event in Arizona because I can’t NOT share an event celebrating Route 66. Having driven the majority of the historic highway, any special event around it catches my eye. This Route 66 Fest, which takes place that was a rest stop along the Mother Road, will sport not only a classic car and motorcycle show, but also includes a zipline. The stacked schedules with two full days of activities will keep you busy. Check out the lineup and live music schedule here.
