Woodward Dream Cruise taking place Saturday, August 20th, in Oakland County
Oakland County communities are preparing to host the Woodward Dream Cruise this Saturday. Organizers say the event draws more than a million people and is the largest one-day automotive celebration in the world.
Michael Lary is the president of the Woodward Dream Cruise. He says, as in years past, this year's route will run from Ferndale to Pontiac, but will not go through Detroit.
"If the city of Detroit wanted to be a part of this," Lary says, "we are more than welcome and open-minded to the conversation. It's really up to them."
An unaffiliated event known as Cruisin' the D will take place on Friday and Saturday, August 19th and 20th. It will feature classic cars and motorcycles and run along Woodward between Six and Seven Mile Roads in Detroit.
