Urban Air

So what is Urban Air anyway?   IT IS FUN THAT IS WHAT IT IS!!!! Click here to see what Urban Air is all about! Airstream Travel Trailers have a rich history and a solid reputation as one of the world's most recognized brands.  Their unique look has been turning heads ever since they hit America's highways in the 1930's.

Urban AIR uses their notoriety while directing the attention to an often overlooked resource closer to home:  Main Street Michigan.

Urban Air in Eaton Rapids will take place on September 22nd through the 24th!  Come and see all of the special events that we have planned, including an outdoor movie, music, shopping, contests and much more!

Urban Air explores each community's unique offerings.  At each stop, they meet new people, invite them into their rigs, make friends, and support the local restaurants, businesses, charities and events.

It's a cash mob that lasts all weekend as we "Wake up Downtown."
