Remember back in the olden days, when the Woodward Dream Cruise only lasted one day?

Those days are over. Now, the cruise officially takes over one weekend, but all south Oakland County residents and classic car owners know it’s really a month-long event. Stop by Woodward Avenue between 12 Mile and 16 Mile any night of the week, but especially Thursdays through Sundays, for a view of cars from the era when tail fins were big and so were the bands.

Here’s a rundown of official Dream Cruise events.
