More than 1,700 vintage Airstream trailers and motor homes paraded from DeWitt to Capital City Airport on Saturday.
The unusual sight was part of the first Wally Byam Caravan Club International Rally hosted in Lansing.
The "silver bullets" started making their way into Lansing June 7, creating a small suburb of 3,500 people near the airport. They will depart July 5.
The Wally Byam Caravan Club is the world's oldest recreational vehicle club and is named for the Airstream inventor.
Rallies are held every year in different states around July 4, Byam's birthday. He came up with the Airstream name in 1934.
During their stay, members of the club attend seminars and enjoy evening entertainment at the Lansing Center.
The club will host a free open house from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday at the site near the airport.
