2010 Castle Days Reunion
On the evening of August 27, 2010, an estimated crowd of over 3,000 car
enthusiasts converged on the White Castle at Livernois and Warren on
Detroit's west side for the 3rd annual Castle Days Reunion. The event,
which celebrates Detroit's street racing days of the 1960's, 70's and 80's,
was scheduled to start at 7 p.m., but by 5:30, the White Castle parking
lot, other lots in the area and the streets began filling up. By nightfall,
Warren Avenue became so congested, Detroit Police closed down the street
and whoever remained within the parameters were treated to a 'muscle car
street party' like never before.
