Part of Winter at Valade's Motown Love weekend, this indoor/outdoor celebration invites you down to Valade Park along the Detroit River to celebrate what you love about Detroit.

Whether you just wrote something at the workshop or have a poem or song you've been dying to share, grab the mic and tell us what Detroit means to you.
