Here’s how to do some relaxin’ on the riverfront with music, movies and food this summer

RiverFront Park

There is something about water that just makes us relax, get mellow and contemplate life. We are so luck in Detroit to have a terrific riverfront that lets us do that at our own pace.

However …

When you add great music, movies and good food, contemplation and mellowness turn into a rockin’ good time.

For four Thursdays in July and August, starting Thursday, July 14, you can celebrate summer along the beautiful Detroit Riverfront with a brand new entertainment series called Riverfront Relaxin’, presented by the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy in conjunction with Park Solutions. It’s free and features live music, games, food trucks, vendors and classic movies under the stars.
