First, Cheryl Chodun wrapping up the action from the first official evening of Dream Cruise. Never mind that it began unofficially last Saturday.
On the eve of the 2011 Woodward Dream Cruise we speak to cruisers about their favorite spots.The next clip picks up right where the last one ended, as Julie Bonovitch describes the party action, both along Woodward and in the adjoining neighborhoods, such as mine.
What do you do if your house is right on the edge of the Woodward Dream Cruise route? You throw a party!I said Dream Cruise had become a major cultural event, and what do people do at major cultural events? Throw parties!
Finally, here is a clip that didn't make it into the report for Thursday. It's raw, unnarrated footage from WXYZ's helicopter showing all the cars involved in Chevrolet's 100th birthday celebration before they rolled down Woodward from Bloomfield Hills. The first group of automobiles shown are the 60+ Volts. I've never seen so many Volts in one place! Also, if you're not as sustainability-minded as I am, there are the hundreds of Corvettes in the shot as well.
Chevy kicks off the Dream Cruise with the Centennial Parade.
That's it for the pre-Saturday action. There will be a part two containing clips from Saturday later tonight.
