This weekend yet again, Grand Rapids, hosts the very popular 28th Street Metro Cruise at Rogers Plaza. Car enthusiasts from all over come to show off and drool over cool exotics and classic cars. The 28th Street Metro Cruise began in 2005 when 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.
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. In 2007 the event expanded from one to two days. The current event schedule runs on both Friday and Saturday.
So go out and enjoy the good weather and hot rods today and tomorrow. Pro Am Collision and Mechanical will be sure to make it out there and see some of the cool cars our certified mechanics, body techs, and painters have worked on over the years. Drive safe!
