Urban Air, Michigan

I just signed up for Urban Air in Eaton Rapids Michigan October 10th -13th. I'm looking forward to our first event with our Airstream since we have just been doing our own thing this summer.

I'm wondering if there are other AirForum members that plan on helping us Wake Up Downtown. Should be a fun time and hope to meet several of you there.

More info on the event at wakeupdowntown.com.

Why have I never heard of this? It sounds like a blast.

It just started last year. The plan is to roll this out across the country over the next several years. A great way to bring attention to small towns.

It's not too late for you to sign up.

I love this idea! Hope it starts spreading across the country. We would love to take part in one of these events. I am from a very small town, and miss it so much!

I'm intrigued by this as well. Despite a very nice website and seemingly? backing direct from Airstream, the organizers apparently didn't advertise very well at Airforums. I would have planned this in to my schedule but it's too late for that now. Hopefully they will plan more than one of these next year and hopefully advertise it here.

I think that since this is still a new event they are keeping it rather small and it has been mostly word of mouth without advertising.

A couple organizers of the event talked to all the Airstream owners at the Tin Can Tourist gathering in Milford,Mi about this. Sounds like a great idea and good time. I expressed reservations about camping on the street with normal traffic flow and they told me not everyone would be on the street. Due to space limitations many trailers would be in a nearby park. I could live with that because I really do not want to be run into by someone on a phone doing whatever. Forgot to ask about showers and such.

I won't be pulling in till Thursday night after the street parking is done. It looks like the overflow is in the community park a short walk across a bridge to the main street.

Mention was made about bathrooms being available for vintage folks, but I don't remember anything about showers.

Sorry I overlooked it.

In the first post it wasn't highlighted as a link and somehow wakeupdowntown.com doesn't have any obvious association with Airstreams.

A member of our WBCCI unit who is planning to go noticed a reference to it in the Airstream, Inc. "Living Riveted", so it does appear to have factory backing.
