Detroit River Days - Lots of summer fun in Detroit

Detroit River Days is one of the newest popular events to go to during the early summer months. With th opening of the Detroit River Walk , it has made many events like these possible. The festival was created when the River Walk opened and was combined with the major fireworks display (also called the Freedom Festival) to turn it into one huge event.

At Detroit River Days, you can find things such as carnival rides, food, art displays, and even events such as basketball competitions, dog jumping, and concerts featuring many popular artists. I love going here every year as it great to see people out and about during a nice summer day, enjoying the view of the Detroit River and each other's company. There is also usually a tall ship that docks at the River Walk. so you can visit that as well.

As I said above, the festival is topped off every year with a huge fireworks display, one of the largest in America, which is great to enjoy. If you do decide to come out for the fireworks, please note that you should come early to get a good spot, and know that if you park close to the downtown Detroit area or in the downtown area, it may take you awhile to leave because of traffic. If that does happen, then just stay back and enjoy the riverwalk for a little while more. Admission is free, but you will have to pay for things like the food and rides, but it is not that expensive at all. Hope you enjoy Detorit River Days!!
