The Indian Uprising is now considered to be one of the largest and highest quality shows in the Pontiac end of the automobile hobby drawing over 600 cars annually with thousands of spectators.  Over the life span of the event, The Cruisin’ Tigers have donated proceeds totaling far more than $100,000 to children’s charities. For 2021, the show is back after a years hiatus in a new home.
