With over one million people attending & tens of thousands of classic rides, the Woodward Dream Cruise was a success.  

Those who attended were treated to some of the most beautiful cars in the world -- and some of the oddest.  A 4-man pedal car, a Firebird covered in toys, and a truck with flames shooting out of it were just a few of the rides unique to Woodward.

Local businesses and vendors were doing well. Estimates say over $50 million was expected to flow into the local economy because of the Dream Cruise.

After 19 years, the Woodward Dream Cruise doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. We were at the event and below is just a few of the highlights. Make sure to check out our photo gallery links to see all the action.
