88th Annual June Day, June 9th 2018

June Day is an annual event in North Rosedale Park that signals the beginning of Summer. Continuously for 88 years neighbors and friends have gathered at the Community House for outdoor fun. Think of it as a small town founders day with activities for children and adults. It is a way for everyone to come together and share in what we all love about our little slice of Detroit - Community! There is a parade through the neighborhood down Bretton where children decorate their bikes (prizes awarded!), blocks have floats (decorating a pickup truck with families in the back is a favorite), and our community partners share in the festivities. The afternoon is filled with outdoor fun with free and low cost activities. Challenge your neighbors in the pie eating contest or sack race! In the evening we will have a free family movie night so everyone can wind down and the kids can stretch out in the Community House floor and watch a movie with their friends.
