Woodward Dream Cruise in Metro Detroit

It's that time of year already – the ultimate cruisin' event is here! It's a day of fun and excitement for car lovers of all ages Aug. 17, 2013.

It's one of the most anticipated events of the year for car lovers in and around southeast Michigan, and on Saturday, Aug. 17, 2013, the Woodward Dream Cruise returns for another year. It's a can't-miss event for families – and it's free, too!

Classic and muscle cars, street rods and more – see some 40,000 cruisers creep down Woodward Avenue – from Ferndale to Pontiac. Bring a lawn chair to sit alongside the street and check out the cars as they slowly pass by. Woodward Avenue is jam packed – from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Saturday.

As you're cruisin' with the kiddies, be sure to stop by a Kids Play Zone in Ferndale, which takes place noon-9 p.m. Join in the fun of the Michigan Gumball Rally – now in its third year.

Royal Oak boasts the Kroger Family Fun Zone, too. Birmingham also hosts its own cruise event in conjunction with the Dream Cruise. Catch more classic cars, activities and entertainment on Old Woodward Avenue.

There will be live entertainment, plus a local DJ on the day of the main event. And, be sure to look for kids' fun, additional car shows and more, which kick off on Thursday and continue through the actual Dream Cruise.

See the Metro Parent listing for more on the 2013 Woodward Dream Cruise.
