Detroit's World African Festival

The World African Festival is celebrating its 30th year this weekend, but in a new midtown location, behind the DIA and the Wright Museum.  Brush Street and Farnsworth are populated with little white tents beginning at noon today. Here's a wonderful opportunity to eat some soul food and garlic crabs, plantains and fried catfish. You'll see people from Senegal, Ghana and Caribbean nations selling their hand made wares. It's a very colorful festival with all kinds of music from reggae, and drum dances to gospel and beyond. The world's longest soul train line takes place Sunday night at 6pm.
