It IS Friday..
It IS August the 19th 2022 !!
It IS.. DREAM CRUISE FRIDAY !!
Technically the Dream Cruise is a one day event, held on the third Saturday of August each year.
However, each year, beginning slowly on Monday and building up inertia and intensity until the cruise finishes about 12noon on Sunday, the cruise is almost a one week long event.
Back on the weekend of August 17th, 2014, Patti and I, along with our friend Tom, enjoyed the Woodward Avenue Dream Cruise.
See what wikipedia has to say in the below link.
The custom cars begin to appear on Monday of the Dream Cruise Week. Oh yes, it is early in the week, and there are just a few randomly scattered street rods and restored vehicles. By Thursday everyone is ready for Friday and out come the cars and trucks and other vehicles en masse. Yes indeed! Saturday IS the peak day and by noon on Sunday the volume of cars has faded away into history.
Below is a link to this weekends 2022 Dream Cruise.
For those of you who may be interested, we'll go back in time to August of 2014 and we'll show some randomly selected photos of the cruise and then provide you with a link to Part 1 of 3 Parts that we posted of the 2014 Dream Cruise. If you want to visit Parts 2 and 3 you can do so by finding them on the BLOG ARCHIVE along the right edge of this site. Go to year 2014 and then to August 29th and September 3rd 2014.

The round trip is approximately 26 miles or 43 km and it runs from 8 mile Road in Detroit all the way North to the city of Pontiac.
Actually it was a great place to see the cars that were parked along the cruise route and were not out cruising!
In the late evening on Saturday, the signature day of the cruise drew to a close!
