Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

So, yesterday was kind of a crazy day! The U.S. not only advanced to next round of the World Cup but are also top seed over England, the longest tennis match ever happened at Wimbledon, and here in Michigan we felt an earthquake.

Well, some people felt an earthquake. Others didn’t even know it happened.

With all that craziness behind us, it’s time to have a great weekend!

Weekend Roundup

1. Opa! Fest - Enjoy live Greek music and traditional folkdances as well as games for the children, exhibits, Greek food and yummy Greek pastry. June 25-27.

2. Jazzin' on Jefferson - This street festival brings jazz, blues, food, arts & crafts, and more to Detroit's lower Eastside. June 26-27.

3. Detroit Music Awards Jam Fest - Head to Campus Martius for the first 4th Fridays in the Park of the summer. Enjoy free music all day including performances by Thornetta Davis, The Brothers Groove, Howling Diablos, and Jill Jack. June 25.

We're big fans of the annual Michigan Challenge Balloonfest in Howell. The mass hot air balloon launches and landings are fun to watch but the night time "balloon glow" is a sight to see. This event is a must for photographers.

Charlie,
I've always wanted to go to the Balloonfest and have never been able to make it. It sounds like a great way to spend the day.
