Kerry Doman, founder of LittleGuide Detroit, rounds up fun events and activities for kids in Metro Detroit this March
By Kerry Doman
It’s March! (March?!) 2020 is going by quickly and there’s LOTS to do around town, from St. Patrick’s Day celebrations to Opening Day for TWO professional sport teams, and National Reading Month giving us a reason to library hop. Follow along with LittleGuide Detroit to discover events and activities near you — and check out these activities this month.
1. Visit a Library for National Reading Month
March is National Reading Month and March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Bring your little readers downtown to see The Lorax House (4759 Trumbull Ave, Detroit, MI 48208) and then visit the Detroit Public Library’s Main Branch, located on Woodward across from the Detroit Institute of Arts. Other libraries to visit: West Bloomfield, Farmington, and Southfield.
2. Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day
St. Patrick’s Day is on March 17th. Put on some green and bring your lucky charms to a parade! Check out our guide to local St. Paddy’s Day events.
3. Attend an Action-Packed Show
4. Go Maple Sugaring
March is for Maple Sugaring. Take a trip to a local nature center and see how syrup is made and bring a jar home to top your homemade pancakes or waffles.
5. Attend an Outdoor Sporting Event
Warmer weather means outdoor sports and Opening Day! Detroit City Football Club kicks off it’s season on Saturday, March 21 at Keyworth Stadium and the Tigers take on the Royals on Monday, March 30th at Comerica Park.
