Let’s talk about bikes, brides, backyards and more!
Let’s begin with an event close to “Live in the D” co-host Tati Amare’s heart: the 5th anniversary of MoGo Bikes in Detroit. Tati enjoys the rentable bikes that let her move about town. To celebrate, join MoGo for a ride this Sunday at 3 p.m. from the Dequindre Cut Greenway to the Dequindre Cut Freight Yard, where you can finish with some food and beverages. In addition, as part of the celebration, MoGo rentals are free today, and yearly and monthly passes are 50% off tomorrow through Tuesday.
It’s wedding season, so if you or someone you know is planning a wedding, you might want to head to the Michigan Bridal and Wedding Expo. It is touted as the largest expo of its type. There will be DJs, bridal wear, cakes, caterers, and even free food sampling. There will also be a fashion show and a glam bar where you can try different your cosmetics. It’s all happening this Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the UWM Sports Complex in Pontiac, which is the former Ultimate Soccer Arena.
On the show, we frequently discuss art fairs, and this one is unique. It takes place in the backyards of Ferndale and Oak Park residents. For the Backyard Art Fair, artists will set up shop in 19 different yards of private homes. It’s happening this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and features everything from handmade jewelry to paintings and ceramics. You can find a map of the homes online; just look for “Backyard Art Fair” on Facebook.
Finally, you can connect with nature at New Boston’s Nature Fest. Live animal exhibitions, canoeing, nature games, a scavenger hunt, and other activities are available. The event is completely free and accessible to the public. It takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday at Crosswinds Marsh on Haggerty Road in New Boston. Children are also encouraged to bring their favorite nature photo, sketch, or painting to show in the live animal tent.
