Getting ready for the Dream Cruise

Merry Mustard MobileEvery evening one can see more and more people in their beach chairs along Woodward Avenue in anticipation of the coming Dream Cruise. Peggy Jo is readying the Merry Mustardmobile for the cruise.

When is the Dream Cruise?

The Woodward Dream Cruise takes place each year on the third Saturday in August. This year, the 17th Annual Woodward Dream Cruise will be held on Saturday, August 20, 2011. It runs between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.

Where is the Woodward Dream Cruise held?

The Dream Cruise takes place along a 16-mile stretch of the legendary Woodward Avenue through eight host communities including Berkley, Bloomfield Hills, Bloomfield Township, Ferndale, Huntington Woods, Pleasant Ridge, Pontiac and Royal Oak, in Southeast Michigan.

Why is the Woodward Dream Cruise held?

The Dream Cruise started as a fundraiser for a soccer field in Ferndale in 1995. In just a few short years, it has evolved into the world's largest one-day automotive event. Spectators and cruisers travel to Metro Detroit, the birthplace of the American automobile, to demonstrate and participate in an event that celebrates an ongoing love affair with the automobile.

Is there a cost to drive in the cruise or attend the cruise?

There are no fees to drive in the Woodward Dream Cruise or to watch the cruise. Anyone can participate although those not driving a classic car are asked to stay out of the two right, or curb lanes.

Where should I park?

The Woodward Dream Cruise is a spectacular experience to drive in, or, merely watch and marvel at from the sidelines. Public parking is available along or near the Cruise route.

The Dream Cruise spawns many private and public events!!

New this year will be a flash mob in Pontiac. This was to be a ‘secret’ but since WXYZ-TV is sponsoring the dance and publishing the event on their website-it’s no longer a secret. Wikipedia describes a flash mob as ‘ a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place and perform an unusual and sometimes seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, artistic expression .’
The flash mob will perform at Water and Saginaw Street in Pontiac at 7:30pm. If you can’t be there having fun dancing in the streets, you can watch it on WXYZ-TV channel 7 live.

Scoop of Summer
Business and Professional Event

WED 2011-08-17
It's time to get social! After all it's in our name! With Summer winding down, Social Media Club Detroit figured what better way to get back in the swing of things than to get together around a bowl of ice cream in a beautiful and uniquely Detroit setting.

We're calling it "A Scoop of Summer" and ice cream will be provided by our sponsor, "Treat Dreams" who will be mixing up some special new flavors just for this event! So, let's all get together - both the SMCD members and the members of all other social & marketing related clubs we've gotten to know this past year. It all takes place in the beautiful Pewabic Pottery building. You can tour the facility or just hang, tweet and eat!

$5 gets you the tour, all the ice cream and refreshments you can eat and a chance to win a pair of tickets to the Social Media Masters event in Toronto on October 7, 2011 (a $600 value - does not include travel & accommodations). http://socialmediamasters.com/the-program/events/toronto-2011/

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Pewabic Pottery.

I ain't no saint, but I've tried never to do anything that would hurt my family or offend God. I figure all any kid needs is hope and the feeling he or she belongs. If I could do or say anything that would give some kid that feeling, I would believe I had contributed something to the world."

I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to."
Elvis Presley

The first time that I appeared on stage, it scared me to death. I really didn't know what all the yelling was about. I didn't realize that my body was moving. It's a natural thing to me. So to the manager backstage I said, 'What'd I do? What'd I do?' And he said, 'Whatever it is, go back and do it again'."
