10 Things to Do in Mid-Michigan This Weekend — September 8-10
The kids are back in school, but the weekend fun doesn't stop for Flint and Mid-Michigan.
The Frankenmuth Auto Fest kicks off with a craft show Friday at 10a and cruises all the way through Sunday with a big block party, entertainment, food, and over 2000 great rides on Weiss Street.
You know the drill -- Back to the Bricks on two-wheels. Jump on your hog or crotch-rocket and cruise on down to Saginaw Street, or just come join in the fun.
Enjoy the works of local artists on display as you stroll down Saginaw Street during the monthly second-Friday Art Walk, which runs from 6p-9p.
Your tax dollars helped pay for it, so you might as well take a stroll through and get familiar with the new home of both the Red Wings and the Pistons. Public tours of the new arena begin @ 2p.
SVSU's varsity softball and baseball coaching staffs host a free clinic teaching basic skills for kids grades K-8, get there by 12:45p to register, and the camp runs until 1:30p.
Join the Autism Support & Resource Center for the 1/3 mile casual walk and family fun day starting at 10a. All proceeds go to help local people with Autism.
The Ren Fest is back for another great season out at Holly Grove this Saturday at 10a. This weekend's celebration of the Wonders of the World runs until 7p Sunday. Ticket prices: Adults $22.95 | Kids 5-12 $13.95 | Seniors 65+ & College Students $20.95
The medical Cannabis celebration is back at Auto City, with seminars and a pretty impressive lineup of performers, including Method Man & Redman, Bone Thugs & Harmony, Wyclef Jean, Akon, Royce da 5'9", Trick Trick, and more. Weekend passes are available from $75, while one-day passes start at $40 (prices are before fees).
Snoop Dogg does a DJ set and Jon Connor performs at the Vehicle City Social, which some of you old-timers might remember as J.J. Shakers. Doors open at 6p, and tickets start at $107.49 each and are only available to Medical Marijuana card-holders.
The Detroit Lions kick off their regular season at home against the Cardinals, where we will see if Matt Stafford's arm has recovered from pulling in the largest salary in NFL history last week.
