Chevrolet Lists Activities at Woodward Dream Cruise

– Each August, more than a million car fans flock to Detroit’s legendary Woodward Avenue for the motorized equivalent of Woodstock. Enthusiasts from around the world gather to celebrate the time when tail fins symbolized American success, and the rumble of a V-8 engine was the soundtrack for summer romance.

This year, the Woodward Dream Cruise will be part of Chevrolet’s Centennial celebration, with events and activities for the press and public over a four-day period. Following are highlights of Chevy-related events at this year’s Dream Cruise.

Wednesday, August 17

Chevrolet will kick off the Dream Cruise with a parade on Woodward Avenue starting at 2 p.m. on Thursday. The parade will feature 50 Chevrolet Volts and their owners in town for Volt’s first Cruise, 20 employee-owned Chevrolet heritage vehicles, the new Camaro ZL1 and Chevrolet Sonic, and vehicles from the GM Heritage Collection.

The Performance Division and Performance Parts display will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Memorial Park on the NE corner of Woodward and 13 Mile Road.
