The annual celebration of classic car culture officially kicks off today. It runs through a number of Oakland County communities along the route.

Organizers say the cruise is expected to draw tens of thousands of classic and vintage cars. It's promoted as the world's largest one-day automotive event, drawing people and vehicles from all over.

The Dream Cruise comes just days after heavy rains caused major flooding in the Detroit area, including in communities along the event's route. But organizers say the flooding is not expected to impact the cruise.
