There is no denying that a strong car culture exists in America, one that can't be found anywhere else in the world. During the summer months, impromptu car shows can be found in many areas. Entire families get involved in what has become a very social event. Swapping stories about cars, people and places can soon develop into long-term friendships.
The Metro Detroit area is no exception! The Woodward Dream Cruise has become one of the area's most popular events. The cruise runs along Woodward Avenue from Berkley to Pontiac, Michigan (16-mile stretch). According to the event's website, it "is the world's largest one-day celebration of car culture that attracts over 1 million visitors, and more than 40,000 muscle cars, street rods, custom, collector, and special interest vehicles."
This year's event will be held on Saturday, August 16th. Although, many enthusiasts begin cruising and displaying their vehicles along the route the week up to the start of the official event. Those days are frequently just as much fun with a bit fewer crowds.
Car lovers from far and wide make their way to Woodward Avenue to:
- cruise up and down Woodward Avenue
- sit along the route watching others cruisin'
- spend time checking out restored vehicles being showcased along the route and in area lots
- participate in the Dream Cruise's official 5k run/walk "Cruise in Shoes"

Many seniors enjoy reminiscing as they see their favorite vehicles from bygone eras pass down their local strees ... once again. Having companionship of family along with them will make it easier for them to navigate the crowds and handle tricky parking situations.
