This coming year marks the 14th Annual Cruise which is held each year in August! The 28th Street Metro Cruise began in 2005. The Wyoming Kentwood Area Chamber of Commerce began the event to help drive business to the 28th Street corridor when M-6 opened on the south end of Grand Rapids. The cruise has been held every August since 2005.
Cruising 28th Street, however, began a long time before the Chamber created this annual event. Cruisers have long considered 28th Street a memorable place for car lovers, particularly around the Roger's Plaza area in Wyoming. Bringing car lovers together to celebrate this long standing tradition was the foundation for the current event. And Cruisers have shown up in the thousands to reminisce. All types of vehicles are included in the event: hot rods, low riders, muscle cars, performance cars, classics, antiques, even motorcycles!
Since 2005, the event has grown from 85,000 attendees the first year to over 250,000 in recent years. The number of participating vehicles attending each year is estimated at well over 15,000. People have come from all over the United States to attend and participate in this annual car-fest. It is an open event, without limits on the types of vehicles allowed and is a non-judicated event.
