CANCELLED-Marche Du Nain Rouge
Sunday, March 22 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pmFREE
All are invited to join in the Annual Marche du Nain Rouge, a parade made up of the citizens of Detroit. Just show up!
Noon: Gather at the corner of Canfield and Second, right next to Traffic Jam & Snug, for a celebration of Detroit with live entertainment.
1 p.m.: We parade down to the Masonic Temple. You are the parade, so come masked or fully costumed. Bring a marching band. Wear a costume. Build a human-powered float. Put on a mask, cover your body in glitter — whatever it takes.
Should the Nain Rouge, Detroit’s legendary harbinger of doom, try something dastardly, we will show him that hope prevails in the city that rises from the ashes. Bring your sense of Detroit pride and sense of humor.
At Mardi Gras, a krewe is any group that joins together to throw a ball or parade. At the Marche, our krewes build human-powered floats, perform music, coordinate themed costumes and represent their Detroit neighborhoods together.
