When you need to beat the heat on a summer day, here are the best places to cool down around…
Los Trompos is back at Beacon Park in downtown Detroit and you don’t want to miss it! The inactive play installation is fun for all ages and FREE!
Los Trompos (Spanish for ‘spinning tops’) is back at Beacon Park from April 27th to May 23rd. The collection of 8 three-dimensional, larger-than-life “spinning tops” are so much fun for kids and adults to play on. It’s also a great backdrop for pictures, so are the the rows of colorful tulips in the park’s gardens. Instead of a trip to Holland’s Tulip Festival, take a trip to downtown Detroit.
The spinning sculptures, created by award-winning artists and designers Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena, weave together Mexican tradition, culture, architecture, and art, by enabling guests to spin the tops inspired by the concept and construction of the traditional Mexican toy. You can further celebrate Mexican culture at Cinco de Mayor at Beacon Park on Sunday, May 2nd. The free event requires pre-registration and features food trucks Los Dos Amigos + Pablos, Make + Take Crafts for kids, salsa lessons and live music!
The park is open to the public, there are public restrooms and street parking is easy to find.
