This weekend is one of the premier events of the year in Southeast Michigan – the 23rd annual Woodward Dream Cruise, billed as the world’s largest classic car event. It not a classic car show in the usual sense – it’s a street fair. More than one million people and up to 40,000 classic cars are expected to visit Woodward Avenue, between Pontiac, MI and Ferndale, MI. It’s big, it’s fun, and it’s FREE!
The Dream Cruise adds at least $237 million to the regional economy according to the Metro Detroit Convention and Visitors Bureau. At least a quarter of those attending are from outside SE Michigan.
Major events began earlier than ever this year, with Dodge and Fiat Chrysler’s day of amateur drag racing and other events at M1 Concourse in Pontiac on Aug. 12.
A new sponsorship from Ford will bring other new events on Dream Cruise day…
