Free kids activities changed to Fridays on July 28, Aug. 25

Same day as Friday Nites, Foodie Rallies in West Village Commons

DEARBORN –  The recently created opportunity for families to enjoy free events will now take place on July 28 and Aug. 25, the same days as the Friday Nites and Foodie Rallies at the West Village Commons plaza, Michigan Avenue and Howard.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 28 and Aug. 25, the plaza — which is closed to vehicle traffic — will be the site for music, jugglers, face painters, balloon sculptures and inflatable rides, all free.

The free children’s activities started out as Saturday events, but to better accommodate families with busy schedules, the special days were moved to Fridays.

The change also means the special days are coordinated with the popular Friday Nites and Foodie Rallies. Those take place from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on July 28 and Aug. 25, also at the West Village Commons.

The special kids’ day entertainment is sponsored by Kenwal Steel.
