Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Looks like we’re in store for a beautiful spring weekend in Detroit as everything begins to turn that awesome shade of green and buds start blooming. Of course that also means that festival season is revving up with the Polish Strawberry Festival. And I have to give a big shout to the Detroit Red Wings in the playoffs for the 22nd year in a row! Let's go Red Wings!

Get out there and enjoy Detroit!
