Go for a spin on the ferris wheel and have some good old fashion fun at the carnival.

Make it a family affair – bring your kids or nieces/nephews for an exciting day on the riverfront. Check out the Kids Zone and enjoy outdoor activities with the Michigan DNR.

The Detroit River turns into a stage for the USA Jet-Ski Freestyle Champions. All weekend long, pilots will preform air jumps, backflips, corkscrew spins and underwater dives for the crowds along the riverfront.
