The Walkabouts

Walkers will amble over to the Huron River Club, a private dinner and social club that was founded by hunting and fishing enthusiasts. Also included in this 10 a.m. “sports corner” tour will be a stop at the Glen Swim Club, established in 1962, and the Total Sports Complex, which opened in 2013. First-timers should sign up at the information tent before 10 a.m. Saturday; walkers meet at the compass rose in the middle of Riley Park.

Music at the Market

The C-4 Band, Farmington area residents the Chrisoms and the Cavanaughs, performs 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Both couples are members of larger, metro Detroit Irish bands, Jamrocks and McSpillin. Their playlist includes everything from traditional and modern folk songs to Irish jigs, reels, and ballads.
