About this grant
The Flint Area Convention & Visitors Bureau has worked in partnership with area car and motorcycle enthusiasts to develop three summertime events in downtown Flint: Le Champion Pave, Back to the Bricks, and Bikes on the Bricks. Back to the Bricks has grown from a small, one-day car show in 2005, to a five-day event, while Bikes on the Bricks is developing into a major motorcycle show. This renewal grant will provide funds to expand on the success of both events by increasing advertising avenues. This is the inaugural year for the cycling race, Le Champion Pave. In 2009, the events attracted over 256,000 visitors and had approximately 28,000 cars and 3,000 motorcycles on display.
