Shiver on the River

Saturday, 10am – Belle Isle

Shiver on the River is Belle Isle’s biggest winter event! Enjoy the day at the aquarium, conservatory, nature zoo, museum – or all four and then some! Most activities are aimed towards younger children, but it’s a great to explore some of Belle Isle’s gems for free!

Paczki Run

Saturday, 10am – Hamtramck

No, this event is not in Detroit… But Paczki day is here! So before you stuff your face in a regrettable amount of Paczkis on Tuesday, burn off some calories at the Paczki 5k Run in Hamtramck. Need motivation? There will be fresh Paczkis at the end of the route! (*Those unaware – Paczkis are a Polish delicacy, similar to a jelly stuffed donut)
