Downtown Detroit will be transformed into a winter wonderland beginning Friday, November 11th at the Monroe Street Midway and Cadillac Square! The Monroe Street Midway welcomed visitors over the last couple of summers, with roller skating, basketball, food trucks and more all adjacent to Campus Martius. Well, now the Midway is getting a makeover for winter so the fun can continue. Features include a 20 ft. high, 80 ft. long Arctic Slide, Winter Bumper Cars, an arcade, and Puck-Putt (a combination of hockey and mini golf). There will also be tasty food available for purchase and Santa will even be making appearances at the Midway on Thursdays - Saturdays from November 18th to December 22th. Admission to the Monroe Street Midway is free this winter. Puck-Putt and the Arctic Slide are also free. Arcade games range from 50¢ – $3 and the Bumper Cars are $5 per session. Check out the hours that the Midway will be open below. 

Just steps away from the Monroe Street Midway, you will find the Cadillac Square Market and the Cadillac Lodge. What has now become a Detroit holiday staple, the shops at Cadillac Square feature local businesses popping up in one central location for the season. This year, 18 businesses will be selling their wares in the square. Some of this year's participants include 3 Dogs 1 Cat, Flamingo Vintage, Mongers Provisions, Not Sorry Goods, and Well Done Goods. Check out the full list of shops here

Also at Cadillac Square, you will find the Cadillac Lodge, a cozy indoor space to warm up with family and friends. There will be food and drinks available in the Lodge from the Iconic Collection, including cocktails, cocoa, cider, popcorn, nachos and hot dogs. There are also couches, comfy chairs, board games, and more. It's like Detroit's big family room that they're welcoming you into. 

Here are the hours for the Cadillac Square Market and the Lodge:

The Monroe Street Midway and Cadillac Square are located in Downtown Detroit just east of Campus Martius. All you have to do to get there is cross the roundabout. So, whether you stop by while visiting the tree or make a separate trip, make sure you don't miss either of these fun attractions this holiday season! Also, if you drive down to the city, parking validation is available from a slew of Downtown Detroit businesses for two free hours of parking at select parking structures in the area. Get more information on that here. Some of your favorite downtown business are also offering discounts this holiday season through Decked Out Detroit (the fine folks behind these pop-ups and the Midway). Check out those deals here and just show them on your phone to receive the discount. Happy Holidays!
