On behalf of Keweenaw Random Acts of Community Kindness, we would like to thank the Copper Harbor community for once again being host to the 16th Annual End O’ the Road Keweenaw Tour and Car Show held on July 20st. A great time was had by all and it was a record-breaking year!!

Thank you to the Keweenaw Cruisers for organizing the ride and the show. 115 participants registered for the event with hundreds of spectators enjoying the classic cars and trucks, food and live music by Reign. Thank you also to the Michigan State Police, Keweenaw County Sherriff’s Department and the Calumet Township Fire Department for their assistance with traffic for the tour from Campioni’s True Value in Calumet to Copper Harbor and to Rob Bohlsen for his work with the trophies.
