The Cruise in Shoes: Saturday at the 2012 Dream Cruise, Part 1

WXYZ's coverage of the Dream Cruise was so extensive that I'm going to break down my blogging of it into parts.

Here's the first of the clips from Saturday.

In addition to the history lesson, we get to hear about the "Cruise in Shoes" a new 5K run that's a fund-raiser for the Dream Cruise. At least people are doing something good for their health to balance out sitting around and breathing exhaust fumes. Sweet.

Also note that the organizer notes that the event has become, if anything, even bigger over the past few years and highlights the love of the 1950s that fuels the cruise, something I pointed out over at Kunstler's blog this morning.
I've mostly been following the Dream Cruise, a celebration of car culture that has, if anything, gotten bigger after Peak Conventional Oil. You may hanker after the late 1800s. These people want the 1950s and 1960s back, and they miss it dearly.
The 1950s theme continues in the next clip, as the other organizer of the "Cruise in Shoes" is dressed up in 1950s pink.

That's it for right now. I'll return tonight with a post reviewing WXYZ's reporting about how the Dream Cruise fuels tourism.
