Friday, May 19th - Dequindre Cut Freight Yard Opening Night: Summer is almost here and along with it comes outdoor fun! The Dequindre Cut Freight Yard is a hidden gem in Detroit, although some people know about it and love it, others have no idea that it even exists because it's tucked away below street level. Stretching from Eastern Market to the Eastern Riverfront of the Detroit River, the Dequindre Cut is a two mile recreational path that follows along an old rail line for the Grand Trunk Railroad. Along that path, near Eastern Market, you will find the Dequindre Cut Freigh Yard a gathering place featuring a beer garden, pop-up events, and more. For this season's grand opening on Friday night, the Yard will have food from Big Bo's Grill, beer and cocktails from the Dequindre Cut Freight Yard bar, ice cream, bonfires, free s'mores, music, and games and activities for all ages. The fun goes from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
