Michigan has always been the car industry state, and perhaps no West Michigan event shows that off better than the annual 28th Street Metro Cruise.
The cruise, hosted by the Wyoming-Kentwood Area Chamber of Commerce, is prepping for its 12th year as a citywide event Aug. 26-27. Free to attend, it brings thousands of car professionals and enthusiasts together on 28th Street in Wyoming to bask in the beauty of thousands of colorful hot rods, low riders, muscle cars, performance cars, classics, antiques, even motorcycles.
Leading up to the event, a preliminary Pin Up Girl Contest and car show took place July 9 at the American Legion in Wyoming, attended by about 500 people. The final contest will be held 1-3 p.m. Aug. 27 at Rogers Plaza, 972 28th St. SW, Wyoming.
The Starting Line event for the Cascade area will be held Thur and Fri 5:30 - 8:30pm at the east end of 28th St.
The area chamber started the Metro Cruise to help bring business to 28th Street after M-6 opened on the south end of Grand Rapids and the RiverTown Crossings Mall opened in Grandville.
