  • Faribault Car Cruise Nights

    When you think of strolling along quaint streets on beautiful warm summer nights, you should be thinking about Historic Downtown Faribault. The third Friday of every month from May through September beginning at 6 PM, people from the community and surrounding area rally their cars, trucks, and motorcycles to showcase their prized vehicles. So, when you’re planning your next weekend getaway, make sure Faribault is on your list (and enter your vehicle...it's FREE). Stay at the Historic Hutchinson House B&B located just 3 blocks from all the action and your car can "sleep" in their garage!
