Thursday: Eclipse will be performing at 5:30 at Fountain Lake Park

Friday: Watch the car cruise starting at 3:00 pm on Broadway (full map will be posted on FCHM
social media.) At 7:30 j. bell & the Lazy Susan Band will perform at 112 on Broadway.
Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Justin Bell fronts this rotating cast of players known as
the Lazy Susan Band. Preferring to refer to themselves as simply straight-up rock & roll, their
style drifts into Americana and roots rock often. At any given performance, the band could
consist of 2-8 players. The LSB has released 4 albums to date: 2001’s “you…up in lights”; the Live
Acoustic 2004 release “Live at Doc’s Landing”; and 2006’s “Something Else Entirely” and 2013’s
“$80 Whiskey”. All of which are available on iTunes.

Saturday: View the cars in the car show and vote for your favorites, all for free! Registration to
enter your car in the show is $10 and will be collected at the entrance on Main and Broadway
from 8-11:30 am. Enjoy 4 street musicians who will provide a variety of music throughout the
car show. A car cruise around Fountain Lake departs from Broadway immediately following the
awards, which will begin at approximately 2:30. Fun for the whole family! A real life Tow Mater
and Lightning McQueen will be at the show, and balloon animals and face painting will be at the
registration tent. Closing out the weekend is Boogie Wonderland who will perform at the 112 on
Broadway beginning at 7:30pm The Freeborn County Historic Museum will also be having a
yard sale from 11:00am-2:00pm.

All events are free to the public and will be on North Broadway in Albert Lea.
