Stories you missed this week | What to do this weekend

A look at stories you may have missed this week -- and a look at what's happening around town.


Happy Saturday! The weekend edition of this newsletter will be a bit different from the normal Monday through Friday version. On Saturdays, I'll take a look some of my top picks from the last week, and highlight some of the events going on around Metro Detroit. Enjoy!

Events around town this weekend

  • The Great Pumpkin Festival is happening in Northville this weekend! Looks like a lot of fun for the family.
  • The first Zoo Boo at the Detroit Zoo is on Saturday. All 125 acres of the Detroit Zoo will be open until dark for this annual "merry-not-scary" Halloween celebration featuring a festively decorated half-mile trick-or-treat trail, magic acts, story tellers, jugglers, live music and extreme pumpkin carving.   
  • Bring in the Halloween season at Greenfield Village's Hallowe'en. Throughout your evening, comfort yourself with craft beers, warm apple cider and fresh doughnuts, then stop for a photo opportunity at your favorite scene. The torches are lit, bells are tolling, skeletons are dancing and pumpkins are singing — all to make this the most stirring night of the year.
  • The annual Belle Isle Harvest Festival is Saturday afternoon! Make s'mores, visit the petting farm, create harvest art and craft projects or enjoy a hayride. Free cider and donuts for the kiddos.
  • Peppa Pig in town: Yes, THE Peppa Pig is in Detroit on Sunday at the Fox Theatre!

Housekeeping 🧹

Hey, if you like this newsletter, let us know. We'd love your feedback. We also offer several other newsletters that probably cater to at least one of your interests -- unless you're only interested in fake plants. We don't have one for fake plants. Sorry.
