The Clinton Township Gratiot Cruise

.

The 12th annual Clinton Township Gratiot Cruise was held this past Sunday, August 3rd, 2014. And while it’s no Woodward Dream Cruise, it still has it’s fair share of cruisin’ fun without the snarled traffic and suffocating crowds.

The cruise stretched from 14 Mile Rd to Wellington Crescent with several areas of big activities along the route. there was a Kid Zone and pedal car cruise at the McLaren Cruise Headquarters, midway games and rides at the Dorian Ford Midway, and free food and drinks at Jim Causley Buick GMC.

But whats a cruise without the cars? And they certainly delivered… most every parking lot on the strip was jam-packed with classics, hot rods, and custom mods. Out on Gratiot were the thunderous sounds of engines revving, burning tires, and people hollering and cheering.

Personally, I like this event better than the Woodward Cruise which has grown too big for itself in recent years. You get the same atmosphere without all of the headache. The weather was perfect and my kids had a blast… what more can you ask for in a cruise?
