Downtown Detroit will buzz today from morning ’til night as the Detroit Red Wings parade marches down Woodward Avenue to Hart Plaza.
Over 1 million people are expected to turn out for the celebration of the Wings’ 2007-08 Stanley Cup championship — a number greater than the entire population of the Motor City.
There is no doubt that metro-Detroiters need something to celebrate. Motown has been in a near-depression for the past few years and most of the news we read has been negative. I hope today’s festivities help to restore some hope in people and help them to forget some of their problems — if only for a day.
Go ahead. Skip work or school today. These moments are few and far between. And you deserve it.
