Thunder In Pontiac - Dream Cruise Festival

Downtown Pontiac promises to be the place to enjoy classic cars, rods and bikes during the Dream Cruise weekend.


This year's festivities include the annual Car Show which you have come to love, live entertainment acts on stages up and down Saginaw Street, and activities for kids, teens, families and young adults including a Zip Line flying through Downtown Pontiac. This year's additions also include The Pontiac Motorcycle Block Party on the north end of town held on Sunday, as well as SCREAM Cruise down at the south end of town on Sunday as well. Brian Major of The Major Group, hired in to help program this year's activities says he's "proud to be working with talent that is not only regional in name but also local to the Pontiac community." As a long time resident and business owner he's glad to promote Pontiac Pride.


Glen Konopaskie of the Pontiac Downtown Business Association says "you'll be glad to see some of the new changes to Downtown Pontiac. Revitalization is happening and exciting to see." This year the PDBA operates the Dream Cruise Festival with the former event organizer, Pastor Doug Jones of the Greater Pontiac Community Coalition acting as this year's advisor to the committee.


Live entertainment is planned across downtown as well as activities to entertain both car show attendees, fans, family, and young adults. With three days of festival activities you'll be glad you came to Pontiac to enjoy this year's Dream Cruise. Pontiac is home to the largest Woodward mileage where you'll have plenty of room to enjoy the Woodward Cruise as well as the Thunder In Pontiac Dream Cruise Festival. On average 200,000 people will visit Pontiac during Dream Cruise weekend to enjoy the fun.
