Whether it’s gliding down the Huron River in a canoe or getting a first-hand lesson in fly-fishing, the Ypsilanti Fall River Day is the best opportunity to celebrate all that the great outdoors has to offer. Located at Ypsilanti’s Riverside Park, visitors can enjoy a series of educational and enlightening lectures including; Birds of Prey, sponsored by the Leslie Science Center, History of the Huron, by local historian, James Mann, and for the adventurous, Fishing on the Huron, a demonstration sponsored by Shultz Outfitters. The Detroit Institute of Art will add a touch of color to the proceedings by displaying select artwork around Riverside Park, Frog Island, and Peninsular Park. But the main attraction is the chance to bond with the lifeblood of the city, the Huron River. From Riverside Park, shuttles will take visitors to a selected put-in spot where they can canoe the Huron to the main attractions. The canoe trip, about five miles, takes about two hours, and is first-come, first-serve.

11am-3pm, Sunday, October 11
Free | Price of canoe trips TBD
