This event is featured in The Current Summer Guide, highlighting both musical and non-musical things to do this summer in the Twin Cities and beyond.

There's nothing wrong with setting your folding chair out on Snelling Avenue and watching the classic cars drive by during shows at the Fairgrounds...but in the heat of summer, maybe lakeside vehicle viewing will be a little more comfortable. The Legacy of the Lakes Museum is hosting a fleet of classic boats on Lake Darling in Alexandria to showcase the more contoured side of Minnesota lake life. There's a ticketed music performance by Kelley Hunt on Friday night, then on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. the classic boat and car show is free for rubberneckers to attend. (To display a vehicle, registration is required.) While you're in Alexandria, you can also check out Minnesota's most controversial museum. (Jay Gabler)
