Power boats, giraffes, and Springsteen
Event of the Week
The whole city comes together this week for some feel-good multiculturalism with the 22nd Annual Concert of Colors -- a weekend celebration of the many communities, ethnicities, and music stylings that make Detroit, Detroit.

Friday, July 11th: It’s that time of year again for the American Power Boat Association's Gold Cup on the Detroit River. It’s that thing where the crazy cool boats go crazy fast. You’ve probably heard and/or seen them before.

Friday, July 11th: There are plenty of Hitchcock films that seem suited to Summertime viewings, and Vertigo is one of them. The Redford Theatre is showing the classic this weekend on Friday and Saturday.
Saturday, July 12th: Springsteen. The E-Street Band. All the classics. It would be awesome to catch some of that on a Detroit Summer’s eve, but sadly The Boss doesn’t have a Detroit stop lined up anytime soon. Instead, we have the next best thing. Bruce in the USA -- the World’s #1 Tribute to Springsteen and the E Street Band -- Saturday at the Magic Bag.
