Noel Night in Detroit
Thousands and thousands of people turned out for Mid-town Detroit's 37th Noel Night on Saturday, December 5th. Several artists were carving blocks of ice into artistic forms in front of the DIA. There were choirs singing, tours meandering and an organ recital in the Cathedral of St Paul. The Motor City Micro Brewery was jam-packed as well as the Good Girls Go to Paris Creperie. Even the public library was wall-to-wall people. Every venue was open and free. They were giving away cookies and assorted beverages. It was interesting walking through the historic Inn on Ferry Street, a very elegant boutique hotel. And yes, the science museum was open and showing off their mummies from Guanajuato. The planetariums had shows, there were plays going on and singing everywhere. The only thing missing was the snow....... Not!
