Before the thunderstorms technically drew it to an early end, the Woodward Dream Cruise brought a nearly a week of activities and lots of people to the Bloomfield area. Here’s a roundup of what you may have missed.
It was all Corvettes as hundreds of proud sports-car owners gathered at the Kingsley Radisson for the America’s Corvette Club parade that benefited a Royal Oak food pantry.
The focus stayed on Chevrolet as the automaker celebrated it's centennial with a party and special gathering of Volt owners at the Kingsley Radisson in Bloomfield Hills.
There was plenty of setting up to do all along Woodward Avenue and early cruisers were out all day.
While the weather held, all things went smoothly at the 7th Annual Bloomfield Township Classic Car Show at the Mercedes Benz dealership along Woodward Avenue.
"It's a perfect place to be, especially if you have kids, because you're out of the hectic zone and get to see everything you need to see," said Bloomfield Township Supervisor Leo Savoie.
"We've kept it real steady, it's not a huge event.It's a small event. It's low-key."
