Rivière28, an auxiliary group within the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy (the Conservancy) will host its fifth annual Light Up the Riverfront event on Friday, June 17 at an all-new location, Gabriel Richard Park (just East of the MacArthur Bridge to Belle Isle.) The group, which is comprised of more than 15 engaged professionals from the metro Detroit area, organizes fun and inviting experiences on the riverfront and Dequindre Cut for their peers who live, work or play in the city of Detroit. The event will be held from 6 until 10 p.m. and is open to individuals of all ages.
Tickets for Light Up the Riverfront are available online for $25
