Woodward Dream Cruise

Saturday August 16, 2014

Jim and Sue Watch


The Granddaddy of them all happens Saturday, August 16th. In 1994 a small cadre of volunteer enthusiasts and business people along Woodward Avenue organized a one day celebration remembering the cruising days of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. They thought that this would probably be a one time affair. Ten years later, what is said to be the largest one day automotive event in the world continues to grow. It has reinvigorated cruising on other major roads throughout the Metro Area, and has turned cruising Woodward in vintage cars into a summer long event. Once again, you can be part of it all by attending the 13th Annual Woodward Dream Cruise Party at Jim and Sue Watch’s house.

Over a million people attending the cruise are not invited; but your family, kids, and any friends you want to bring are welcome. Conveniently located within walking distance from the center of the action on woodward (see picture), our party venue has received a three and a half stars rating in the DTSC party red book guide for three years in a row. Past years have featured nachos, corn dogs, rain showers, and who can forget last year’s power outage? This is an open house party, so come when you want to anytime after 8 am. The party lasts until the traffic clears and the police open up the streets (11:30pm – midnight). We provide convenient on and off street parking, burgers, dogs, bottled water, the grill, cooler capacity, soft drinks, Indoor Plumbing, and shade to all comers. Please BYOB, but please remember that open alcohol is not permitted on Woodward. If you want to, bring a small dish to pass. We are west of Woodward, and on the day of the cruise the best way to approach our house is from Greenfi eld. Go north on Greenfield to Normandy (13 ½ mile). Go right (east) on Normandy for ¼ mile until you reach Parkway. Turn right on Parkway, and then immediately turn left on Parkview (the street that goes up the hill). We are at 4008 Parkview, 248-549-1368.

Hope to see you here! –Jim & Sue Watch
