Attention car fetishists: This festival is for you. For the next three days the Minnesota State Fairgrounds will be showcasing over 5,000 street machines and muscle cars. In addition to parked, sparkly cars there will be other vehicles pushed to their limit during burnout competitions (will any tire survive?), loud-mouth drag races, acceleration and break tests, and a timed obstacle course. Over 45,000 spectators are anticipated to attend, so do yourself a favor and avoid Snelling Avenue. It's probably best to park farther away, then hop a bus to the event.
