Celebrating history, retro games, and the big top rolling in
It’s the first weekend in November and that means many of the spooky Halloween events have come to an end, but there’s still fun to be had in the D. If you plan to attend one or both of the next two Detroit Red Wings games at Little Caesars Arena, get ready to celebrate. The Wings will celebrate the 1997 Stanley Cup Championship during Thursday’s 7pm game but you’ll want to be in your seats by 6pm to catch the special celebration. Then on Saturday there will be a celebration for the 1998 Stanley Cup Championship. The game is at 1pm, but you’ll want to be seated by noon for the special event. More than 30 players, coaches and staff from that time are coming back to Detroit for the festivities. Commemorative merchandise will be available in the team store. If you can’t make the games, there’s a new exhibit featuring the stories of the 1997 Red Wings opening Saturday November 5 at the Detroit Historical Museum in Midtown.
Apple & cider season is here and there are lots of events to celebrate
As the summer winds down, some fall activities are revving up! This weekend Campus Marius Park in Downtown Detroit transforms into a Bavarian Bierhaus for Parktoberfest. The event celebrates German culture and will feature food trucks, live music, a Biergarten pavilion with beers and games and kids activities. The Fest is happening Saturday September 10 and Sunday September 11.
Weekend events happening all over the D!
No triples or homeruns this weekend at Comerica Park. The ballpark that usually hosts the Detroit Tigers will play host to some big name musicians all weekend long. The park is being transformed to an open-air concert stadium and will feature Chris Stapleton on Friday, Billy Joel performs on Saturday, and on Sunday fans can rock out with Def Leppard and Motley Cru.
