Kalamazoo, MI is gearing up to welcome the NSRA Street Rod Nationals North event coming up this weekend. Starting Friday, September 11 over 2400 street rods will descend on the city for display through Sunday, September 13. Last year's event brought rain the entire weekend, but that didn’t stop the die-hard enthusiasts from turning out and enjoying the scene. This year the weather looks to be much better with sunny skies expected, which will impact the number of spectators making the trip this year. The three day event offers something for everybody with over 110 manufacturer and dealer displays, arts and crafts, swap meet, and the special ‘Streets of Rods’ found at most NSRA events this year.
Kalamazoo is home to several other attractions once you’ve had your fill of vintage street rods. From theatres to zoos, there is plenty to do the entire weekend. The Gilmore Car Museum in nearby Hickory Corners is currently running its attraction ‘History- A ¼ Mile at a Time’ featuring a drag race exhibit that details the history of the sport. Be sure to make it if you're in the area. It'll be a weekend your family won’t soon forget. NSRA events have played a pivotal role in the street rodder market and it’s only getting bigger each year.
