About this grant

The Flint Area Convention & Visitors Bureau has worked in partnership with area car, motorcycle, and cycling enthusiasts to develop three summertime events in downtown Flint: Back to the Bricks, Bikes on the Bricks, and Le Champion Pave. Back to the Bricks has expanded from a small, one-day car show in 2005 to a five-day event, while Bikes on the Bricks is developing into a three-day show. In its inaugural year, 185 cyclists competed in Le Champion Pave. In 2010, the events attracted over 308,000 visitors to downtown Flint. This renewal grant will provide funds to expand on the success of each event.
