We’re so excited to celebrate this milestone with our Detroit families, past and present, and look to an even brighter future together.”

Guests will also enjoy entertainment from local musicians and modern takes on classic ballpark fare from Detroit’s top chefs, with a spectacular fireworks display closing out the evening.
