Roseville Mi! What a bunch of tools! We will know better and not show up next year!
Here is where I find that the city of Roseville was a bunch of amateur cruise wanna be’s. They changed up the format with some poor communications and stealth advertising. I find this a perfect reason not to go there and the “free cruise” label was totally misleading. And then , to top it off, when cruisers did show up they, the Roseville Police Department, took advantage of the misinformation and were passing out $300 to those who chose to cruise Gratiot. What a bunch of asshats! But I guess you have to get your revenue enhancements somehow, Right!?
Roseville’s annual classic car event Saturday will not include any cruise whatsoever and instead will feature stationary car shows. The Roseville Heritage Foundation’s Classics on Gratiot from noon to 8 p.m. will have 25 locations along a four-mile stretch between 10 Mile and 14 Mile after the foundation decided not to hold a cruise because of poor turnout and high expenses for extra police and safety personnel in previous years. Detroit News – June 10
Well, they kinda told ya but not really well!
After more than a few years of not being able to get it right the city of Roseville, MI decided to have a “Cruise In” rather than a “Cruise”
Along the way they just kinda forgot to tell the major media that it was no longer a cruise but a car show with 25 locations in Roseville. The Roseville Gratiot Cruise page is still up on Facebook but hasn’t had any activity since March 3rd.
However, on April 4 the press release on Roseville Heritage Cruise site still touted the event as a car cruise. No mention of a car “show”
But it was immediately followed on the same day by this release –
“We are excited to inform you of some changes in this year’s cruise event. The title of the 2016 event will be “Classics on Gratiot” hosted by the Roseville Heritage Foundation. Various participating events will be happening along Gratiot Ave between 10 Mile Rd & 14 Mile Rd. This will include several car shows, entertainment and venders. As it was many years ago, Gratiot Ave will have a good old fashion “Cruise In” (Open Cruise). Car enthusiasts will be able to show off the pride and joy of those beautiful classics, Hot Rods, and Customs as they “Cruise In” at various locations.”
On the Roseville Heritage Cruise site for May 5 they put up a small entry with a new poster
On June 10 the Macomb Daily posted
“Classics on Gratiot is the revised name for the Roseville Gratiot Cruise, but no cruising will be allowed. Instead, organizers have arranged a series of static car shows at bars, restaurants and shops featuring vintage vehicles, live entertainment and related events along Gratiot between 10 Mile to 14 Mile roads. Hours are noon to 8 p.m. Macomb Daily
Consider us totally informed now and the City of Roseville has given itself a black eye so that those that didn’t want to go there before just got a taste of why they don’t want to go there again. I know I won’t!
