Woodward Dream Cruise kicks off Saturday

Thousands of classic, cool rides heading towards Woodward

DETROIT - There certainly wasn't a shortage of things to do and see on Woodward Avenue on Friday night.

One option was to stop by the 9th annual Emergency Vehicle Show. Vintage police, fire, and EMS vehicles were on display from jurisdictions across the area. Kids had the chance to spray the fire hose and ride up on a fire truck ladder. It made for some breathtaking photographs.

On the corner of Woodward & 13 Mile, Chrysler set camp. New cars & classics scattered the parking lot with bands playing in the background.
