Dream Cruise rolls into town Saturday
Rev your engines – the Woodward Dream Cruise will roll down Woodward Avenue on Saturday, August 21, bringing thousands of classic cars and more than one million people from all over the world.
Adding to the festivities, the Birmingham Cruise Event will take place on S. Old Woodward Avenue from Bowers Street to Landon Street, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Birmingham Cruise Event features classic cars of all makes and models. Attendees will enjoy seeing Thunderbirds, Mustangs, Corvettes and much more. Throughout the event area, food vendors will offer items like fresh squeezed lemonade, hot dogs and frozen treats.
“We are looking forward to bringing the 26th annual Birmingham Cruise Event back downtown this year. Though the event footprint will be smaller due to city restrictions, we are anticipating a great turnout from car clubs and enthusiasts, and people from all over the region,” said Birmingham Shopping District Operations and Event Manager, Jaimi Brook.
The Chevrolet exhibit will host a variety of displays highlighting their latest cars and trucks. Both WXYZ Channel 7 and WOMC 104.3 FM will broadcast live from downtown Birmingham throughout the day.
Birmingham's walkable downtown is the ideal place for cruise enthusiasts to spend the day. The historic downtown area features a wide variety of restaurants, including sandwich shops, casual dining, upscale eateries and a variety of ethnic cuisines. All Cruise events and venues are within walking distance of Birmingham’s five parking structures, where the first two hours of parking are always free.
