There are a lot of fun events heading downtown, here are other activities happening this summer:
If you loved Los Trompos you’ll want to plan another trip to Beacon Park to check out Bounce. The latest art installation bring together colorful parachute cord and piano wire combine to create unique triangle shapes that during daylight hours cast shimmering shadows. The piece transforms at night, under the glow of ultraviolet light, into a surreal beacon and iridescent burst of color.
Calling all racing fans, the Grand Prix is back! Watch the cars of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES race in the Chevrolet Dual in Detroit doubleheader, the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and the Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires Series on the Raceway at Belle Isle for a one weekend only event.
