Warren Birthday Bash
This Macomb County city celebrates its 55th birthday with a four-day celebration of family fun Aug. 23-26, 2012 at Warren City Square
Celebrate the city of Warren's 55th birthday with a bang! This year's four-day bash, which takes place Aug. 23-26, 2012, includes fireworks, carnival rides, music performances and much more. Bring the kids for one night or all four – and help the city of Warren blow out its birthday candles in what is sure to be a fun time for the whole family.
The birthday celebration kicks off Thursday at noon with the all-weekend carnival, live concerts, walk-in mobile aviary cage, camel rides and Chase's famous racing pigs. These activities happen all weekend long – so no need to fret if you miss them on Thursday.
An outdoor screening of Toy Story 3 ends the Thursday night fun. Grab some food, a blanket and your family – take a load off from the day's events and enjoy this beloved children's movie.
Carnival not cutting it? Friday's events include fireworks and a performance by Jack Scott. If you had to pick at least one day to visit this year's bash, it would have to be Saturday. Saturday is Kids/Scouting Day – and it's filled with family and kid-friendly activities. Highlights include a rock-climbing wall, slot-car racing, a flaming-brick breaker, a three-bike giveaway and a laser light show.
