Detroit's River Days

Click image to see it larger.

It doesn't matter what's happening with jobs or the economy, Detroit always knows how to party. Last weekend it was the 3-day River Days Festival beside the Detroit River in the heart of downtown. For $3 during the day and $5 at night, you had a full carnival with great rides, performers/buskers along the River Walk, all kinds of food booths, a huge sand sculpture, the River Walk splash fountains for kids (and adults) to play in, and live music on three different stages.

On Sunday night I saw 3 of the original 4 members of Boyz II Men electrify a crowd of thousands of Motown fans. Is it any wonder why I adore this city and its people???
