ANN ARBOR - Nothing says summer like sipping sangria on patios downtown.

The Main Street Area Association is throwing its first Bloom Fest on Saturday, May 11, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. to kick off the summer season, and it also happens to fall on the day before Mother's Day.

Expect patios featuring specialty brunch menus, drinks and live music and deals and previews of summer stock at local retailers all day long. Some stores will also be holding workshops and word is that Violin Monster will also be making an appearance.
