DETROIT DREAMIN' The Woodward Dream Cruise, the world's largest one-day celebration of car culture, attracts more than one million visitors and 40,000 cars.

Cruisers and spectators drove along a 16-mile route of nine communities including Berkley, Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Bloomfield Township, Ferndale, Huntington Woods, Pleasant Ridge, Pontiac and Royal Oak.
