Heartwarming. Inspiring. Moving.
The Dream Cruise and Wrangler Rally is the largest car cruise benefiting The Hometown Foundation, Inc. Hundreds of automotive enthusiasts from across the country convene at The Farmington Club. The Dream Cruise is a twelve mile police-escorted journey where drivers pair up with Dream Riders in their classic or exotic vehicles for a cruise through the Farmington Valley. Upon returning to the Farmington Club, passengers are dropped off at the red carpet for a grand entrance to the Saturday evening festivities.
If you would like to drive a Special Olympics athlete in the Dream Cruise you must pre-register as a driver, complete a short application to become a Class A volunteer and take a 10 minute protector behavior online quiz to be cleared.
