If you find yourself vacationing in a Corvette in southeastern Michigan this weekend, you may need to know that north and southbound traffic on Fort Street through what metropolitan Detroiters call the Downriver Area will be pretty heavy. This is the annual Saturday event called the Downriver Cruise.
Not as immense as the granddaddy of them all, the Woodward Dream Cruise in August, this is a key celebration of American automotive ingenuity for those living south of Detroit. Two other large shows like this erupt in southeastern Michigan every summer: the Cruisin' Gratiot in June and Cruzin' Telegraph in July.
Thousands of classic cars, always including many Corvettes, will be present for viewing. Upwards of a half million spectators are expected to come enjoy the beautiful weather and great fun!
