Get there early to check out “TRI the Huron”, an adventure games triathlon from 7-9am. Canoes and kayaks will be available to rent for $5. If you ride your bike to the event, boat rentals are free!

There will also be information displays from several local organizations and local food vendors. 12-4pm. Free. Gallup Park, 3000 Fuller Rd. 734-794-6240. www.a2gov.org
