Locally in metro Detroit (Mome Raths can be from metro Detroit), this weekend is a sort-of-holiday called the Dream Cruise. Of course Detroit has a car holiday (it is the Motor City). The entire purpose of this day is for old guys to bust out their old cars they've been working on and cruise down Woodward Ave. (Michigan Hwy 1, basically Detroit's Main Street). That's it. Really.
Normally, I rather despise the Dream Cruise. I usually have to work and being as that is my primary route of transportation, it gives me a bit of a headache. It also just seems like a giant waste of gas. I planned on locking my doors, staying inside to avoid traffic and maybe coming out later just to walk over for a quick look.

So, maybe (just maybe) the Dream Cruise isn't ALL bad. Cool specials going on around town is kind of nice. There's also a little carnival going on for it. I also believe the demise of the Dream Cruise is inevitable; my generation doesn't seem to keen on keeping it going. It will probably die out within my lifetime, especially since Detroit is attempting to expand it's enterprise outside of just cars, inviting new and varied types of people. People who probably would see this holiday as almost barbaric.
Final Thought: Dream Cruise gets 3 out of 10 toadstools
