Let’s ROAR For 313 Day!

What does 313 Day mean to you? The crowds are ROARing so loud that you can’t hear for the next couple of days? The Detroit Lions blue painted all around Ford Field with die-hard Detroit Lions fans’ faces showing all sorts of emoji emotions? This is what ONE PRIDE and 313 DAY is all about! Are you ready DETROIT MOMS, once again, to show pride in our city on 313 Day?

To be honest, I never had a number from the 313 area code. However, I did play, got my higher education, and worked in the 313. So, I spent most of my young adulthood galavanting around (as my parents would say) in Detroit. I love the city! I remember when I was a kid calling my mom, who worked at a hospital in Detroit for over 30 years, on the phone almost every shift, saying “Hi, it’s me again . . . can I speak to Luchie?” The number is still ingrained in my ol’ brain: 313.966.4450!

All of us here in the Metro Detroit area have had many stories (some crazy) and memories and still either live, work, or have some special place we call home in the 313. On March 13, us Detroiters will celebrate the best we can! And if you need a few ideas, you know we’ve got you covered. Here are some great family events to check out for 313 Day!

313 Day Celebration

The Local 4 team, Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, and Raise the Flag together have packed this day full of fun for all ages!

Where: 2670 Atwater St. Detroit, MI 48207 (Robert C. Valade Park)

The best thing about this event is that it’s completely FREE and family-friendly. What better way is there to celebrate this great city than by enjoying the spectacular views of the Detroit River and all of the new developments such as the Southwest Greenway, which connects Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Centennial Park with the Michigan Central Mobility Innovation District, and is a key part of the 27.5 mile Joe Louis Greenway!

Tell all your friends and family and have a great time down memory lane while taking great photos for the ‘gram!

The museum with Detroit vs. Everybody is such a natural collab as the brand “embodies the pride and unapologetic spirit of our beloved Detroit!”  So grab your boos and your DvE shirts and have fun!
