Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Um, I don’t mean to alarm anyone but someone stole autumn. I swear that I saw it last week and now its vanished. The chilly temperatures are trying to lure us into an early winter and I’m not having it. I’m going to keep looking for autumn; maybe it’s under my bed or in the back of the closet. In the mean time, here are some events going on this weekend in metro Detroit to keep you occupied.

Weekend Roundup

1. Avedon Fashion Photographs 1944-2000 at the DIA - This much anticipated exhibit of Richard Avedon's fashion photographs opens this Sunday at the Detroit Institute of Arts. October 18, 2009 through January 17, 2010.

2. The Stonewall Pumpkin Festival at the Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm - Take a wagon ride to the pumpkin patch and carve your own pumpkin. Return later in the evening to see all the jack o'lanters aglow on the stone wall. October 17. 

3. The Detroit Free Press/Flagstar Marathon - Cheer on the runners as they dash through Detroit! This course includes two Canadian border crossings; utilizing the tunnel and the Ambassador Bridge. Check out the race route and see the landmarks that they will pass. October 18.

4. The Rocky Horror Show - This cult classic will be live on stage at Clutch Cargo. "It's just a jump to the left, and a step to the right, with your hands on your hips, you bring your knees in tight..." October 16-17.

5. Night Terrors - This haunted thrill park offers 6 attractions including Alien Caged Clowns and The Ultimate Haunted Barn. Weekends through Halloween.

Looks like Rocky Horror isn't in the cards for me :( ... but we -are- getting out to the Avedon and history of photography shows at the DIA in the coming weeks :)
