ROSEVILLE, Mich. (AP) - A scheduling conflict between two Detroit-area car cruises is driving a wedge between the events’ organizers.

The Detroit News reports (https://bit.ly/134Htrs ) officials for a classic auto parade in Roseville have scheduled next year’s event for the same day in June as a longstanding cruise in next-door Eastpointe.

The board president for Eastpointe’s cruise says he is disappointed that the Roseville Heritage Foundation double-booked the parades. He says the scheduling overlap is “a slap in the face.”

The Roseville Heritage Foundation chairman says he sympathizes but the foundation picked the date to coincide with a new city-sponsored event, the Rose Fest.

He says he hopes the two cities and event organizers can work together and possible have one large car cruise through both communities.

Roseville’s Gratiot Cruise drew about 10,000 spectators last year.
