Drive For Kids 2016

DFK webhead

NEW FORMAT! October 9, 2016 | 7:30 AM – 1:00 PM
Presented by Walser Automotive Group

Join WCCO Radio’s Dave Lee and hundreds of auto enthusiasts on the Upper Midwest’s finest fall color drive. “Drive for Kids” supports vital programs for local at risk youth offered by Bolder Options and Red Wing Youth Outreach.

New format includes two options: Option 1) Come along just for the leisurely cruise enjoying spectacular views of the bluffs and stops at your favorite watering holes for a cold one as you drive around Lake Pepin, through Wabasha, Minnesota then into the town of Red Wing,


Option 2) enjoy a bit shorter cruise with a short-cut across the northern tip of Lake Pepin so you’ll arrive in Red Wing with enough time to let your ride be the spectacular view of the day by entering it in the Red Wing Car Show for a chance at bragging rights, a trophy, and other awesome prizes!

The event starts at Walser Toyota in Bloomington and ends at the Elks Club in Red Wing in conjunction with the Red Wing Fall Festival of Arts. All cars, all drivers, all groups welcome. Fun for the entire family. Our EARLIER START and MORE EFFICIENT program means you’re back on the road, enjoying the rest of the afternoon with plenty of daylight to spare!

  • Registration begins at 7:30 AM
  • Cars line up at 8:15 AM
  • Group start with Shriners Motorcycle Club leading the way at 8:30 AM
  • Car show judging begins at 11:30 AM
