CHRISTMAS IN DETROIT...a beautiful thing!


The beauty and splendor of a giant Christmas Tree!

The Christmas holiday season in Detroit got off to an amazing start on Friday, November 16, 2012, with the lighting of the giant Christmas Tree. The City of Detroit, along with Integrity Productions, transformed Campus Martius into a happy winter wonderland. As your official "Barometer of Fun", I gave you all plenty of advance notice to come downtown and join in on the festivities! Well, I missed most of you, but the thousands of people who DID make the effort were treated to a special kind of Detroit love! Please read the link below for a full recap and a video.



As a rule, Christmas tends to bring out the best in people anyway. Detroit is a city that is generally not high on the fun barometer, but it is now. Every square inch of the downtown is literally covered in twinkly lights...the trees, the facades of the buildings, even the sidewalks are stenciled with giant snowflakes! We have a band shell and an ice skating rink! Live music is scheduled to play all weekend, both inside the festivity tents and out. There are dozens of REAL Christmas trees all decorated and everything else is trimmed in boughs of REAL holly or wrapped up as gifts! The downtown is spotless and everyone is being NICE to each other!
So sweet!


Our band shell.






The signage was amazing!

 I want to emphasize that Integrity Productions is an event promoter and they really went out of their way to make sure Christmas Wonderfest Detroit exceeded expectations...and it did! From the show lay-out to the cooperation of security and the treatment of the artists participating in the Marketplace, everything was perfect! Every area of the tents where people congregated for music, food or the full service bar was comfortably heated.  I want to extend a special thank you to them, and to my friend ROBERT STANZLER from DETROIT MERCANTILE, who invited us to be a part of this show. We made a ton of money and had fun doing it...and trust me, I KNOW fun! This is nice, clean fun suitable for hipsters and families, and hipsters WITH families! Young or old or somewhere in the middle. And it's pretty much all FREE!


The Marketplace!
The food and cocktails and music booth!
 The Kaleidos performed all night!
If you have the opportunity, try and make it down to Campus Martius this weekend or next. And don't forget that on Thursday, November 22nd...Santa Claus comes to town! Please check for more information on hours for the Marketplace in the link below.
The artist marketplace rocked!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout
of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
