89th Annual June Day, June 8th 2019

June Day is an annual event in North Rosedale Park that signals the beginning of Summer. Continuously for 89 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 food trucks and live entertainment by the Detroit Social Club. Come one, come all.
