Detroit River Days

The 6th annual Detroit River Days will come to an end today, but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about how great it has been! The three-day festival kicked off  Friday, June 22, 2012 ,  with some old favorites and new additions.

River Days presented by the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy was held across the Detroit River Walk,  and welcomed many performers, and carnival rides.  Boys II Men will be one of the performers tonight, so make sure you don’t miss out.  Don’t forget about the Riverwalk Buskers which are a new addition to the festival. These street performers can be found across the Riverwalk doing illusions, musical acts , and much more.

This family friendly festival is an event you don’t want to miss. Experience a great Detroit summer, and stroll the Riverwalk. Check out more information, and activities for the night on the Riverfront website.
