Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Summer is officially over although you might not have noticed it with the humidity we had this week. In metro Detroit, we’re now headed into that time of the year when we feel the need to take advantage of any good weather Mother Nature bestows on us. In light of that, I’ve picked both indoor and outdoor activities for this weekend.

Weekend Roundup

1. Detroit Historical Museum - The museum will offer free admission Saturday and Sunday to kick off a few new exhibits. Check out VeloCity:Detroit's Need for Speed, Detroit Trivia, and Detroit's Snack Food Superstars. September 26-27.

2. Kiss Alive 35 Tour - The legendary band returns to Cobo Arena this weekend. Put your makeup on and sing along to "Detroit Rock City." September 25-26.

3. Pecha Kucha Night Volume 5 - Pecha Kucha Night is a place for young creatives to meet, network, and show their work in public. It's designed to keep the presentations short and sweet; each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each. The Gem Theatre, September 25.

4. The Villages Bike Tour with Wheelhouse Detroit - Ride your bike through the Detroit RiverWalk, the Berry Sub (home of the Manoogian Mansion), the cluster of Gold Coast apartment complexes, the stately manors of Indian Village and the quirky charm of West Village. September 27.

5. Sheep and Wool Festival - Come out to the country (Romeo) and see demonstrations of border collies gathering and herding a flock of sheep, watch sheep shearing, talk to a spinner, and other family activities. September 26-27.

Speaking of sheep, I just love this video:
