â€œHappy Days Are Here Againâ€ is the theme for the 2017 Villagersâ€™ Annual Historic Hunt & Road Rally on April 8. The event is open to the public and will begin downtown promptly at 4 PM, in the parking lot of the Miami Womenâ€™s Club, 1737 N. Bayshore Drive, Miami (behind the former Omni complex). MiMo (Miami Modern) architecture will captivate registered hunters as they drive their own cars for a 2 Â½ hour mad-cap, clue-solving quest, touching on some of Miami-Dadeâ€™s most interesting historic sites.
The Miami Auto Museum will be the Huntâ€™s final stop at 6:30, for an optional buffet dinner in the 50â€™s Diner, silent auction and tour of the Museumâ€™s Dezer Collection. Prizes will be awarded to winning teams. The Miami Auto Museum is located at 2000 NE 146th Street in North Miami. The museum tour includes Supercars, James Bond Gallery, Batmobiles and Hollywood set cars. The Villagers have been hosting Historic Hunts for more than 30 years and have developed a reputation for creating lots of laughter and good-natured team competition, while exposing the little-known, often quirky side of local history. Tickets range from $20 to $75.
