Gallup Park / Sunday, July 13

From the Tigris and Euphrates to the Seine or the Thames, every great city on earth is built on a river, and Ann Arbor is no different. Every summer, Washtenaw county residents gather to give praise to the running water on Huron River Day. This year's event will feature live music on the scenic banks as well as food vendors. For the adventurous sort, boats will be available for $5 rental—or free if you're feeling doubly adventurous and ride your bike to the event.
