LeMay – America’s Car Museum’s (ACM) is bidding adieu to summer in true fashion: by throwing the giant Summer Ender Fender Bender blowout party on Sept. 10. The bash on ACM’s Haub Family Field with free admission will feature live music, food trucks, a beer garden and an opportunity to test drive the latest Fender guitars. Three Fenders are included in a live raffle.
The weekend will host an array of activities, including:
- A cruise-in: Open to the public, enthusiasts can bring their cool, colorful collector vehicle to the event to show off their pride and joys. The types of vehicles and years will vary depending on who brings what, but a full spectrum is expected, from Model Ts to T-Birds to new Camaros and Harley-Davidsons and everything in between. Expect to see hot rods, muscle cars, motorcycles, sexy European sports cars and supercars from Exotics at Redmond Town Center
- Firefighter Appreciation Weekend: ACM is offering free admission to Washington State Firefighters on Sept. 10 and 11. Guests to ACM will be able to see a unique display of vintage and modern fire trucks, including a late-1800s man-drawn hose cart, a 1919 American LaFrance Fire Engine, a 1921 Stutz Model B Pumper Fire Truck, a 1946 Kenworth Fire Pumper, a 1947 Mack Type 95 Pumper and a 2016 Rosenbauer Ladder Truck
- Friend’s n’ Fender’s Drive: This special Club Auto driving tour starts with coffee and pastries on the Anderson Plaza at ACM. Enthusiasts can then parade their vehicles down a 100-mile scenic route followed by a tour and lunch at Griot’s Garage
- The Fender Experience: Put your shredding skills to the test with Fender’s 2016 lineup of acoustic and electric guitars, Bassbreaker guitar amps, MOD Shop Experience and more. Fender is also donating a trio of guitars for a live auction at the event, with proceeds benefitting ACM
“We’re waving goodbye to summer in ACM style,” said David Madeira, CEO of the Tacoma-based Museum. “The Summer Ender Fender Bender is going to be a blast.”
