(Source: Freep.com) Detroit River Days organizers said Tuesday that the fifth annual party celebrating downtown's revitalized riverfront will be getting bigger.
As a result of partnering with Windsor's Summerfest, new activities like the 26th annual Tug Across the River, a firefighters competition, will be part of the event. There also will be an international tugboat race.
A number of signature events will return, including a night parade of light-decorated boats. Of course there will be tall ship tours and national and local music acts. The band lineup is expected to be announced after Memorial Day, organizers said. Detroit River Days, scheduled for June 23-26, leads up to the 53rd annual Target Fireworks, to be held June 27 on the riverfront.
