It’s Memorial Day Weekend, and plenty events are on tap

If you’re looking to have a great time in Metro Detroit, you have several options

The long awaited unofficial kick off to summer is upon us, and if you’re looking for something to do, there’s a lot of happenings around Metro Detroit. First up, if you’re in the mood to move, the Movement Music Festival returns. Tens of thousands will descend on Detroit’s Hart Plaza for the 3 day fest. There will be more than 115 acts on 6 stages, including international and local performers and DJ’s. The Movement Music Fest happens Saturday through Monday at Hart Plaza in Downtown Detroit.

The dance party continues, this one on a smaller scale, at the Detroit Diaspora Day Party. The 5th annual event will feature a lineup of House Music, Afro Beats, Soul and more, from Detroit and National Artists. There will also be a diaspora marketplace reminiscent of a vibrant and bustling African marketplace. The party happens on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the Epiphany Community House in Detroit’s East English Village Neighborhood.

If you’re looking for a fun family event, take a step back to pre-historic times for the annual Dino and Dragon Stroll at Canterbury Village. The walk-through event will feature life-size, and baby Dinos, that interact with kids of all ages. The stroll happens Saturday and Sunday in Lake Orion.

There are also several communities holding Memorial Day Parades. Most parades will take place on Monday. Check your community bulletins for more information.
