Livonia Spree at Ford Field

This Wayne County city turns 63 this year – and invites you to join a party week filled with entertainment and family fun June 25-30, 2013

It's a weeklong birthday bonanza when the Livonia Spree returns to Ford Field June 25-30, 2013 to celebrate the city's 63rd birthday! There are tons of fun activities and rides to keep your family busy all week long.

On Tuesday, the opening day, moms and dads can experience a wine and beer tasting that goes 6-9 p.m. Hit up the tasting before a Battle of the Bands contest.

Wednesday features a comedy magic show, slot car racing, a kiddy pie-eating contest and clown show, as well as free carnival rides for children and adults with disabilities from 2 to 5 p.m.

On Thursday and Friday, see more magic and clowns – plus, on Friday, get your butt in gear with fitness motivators on the main stage.

Saturday is Family Fun Day! Experience kid-friendly games and races, along with a parade the whole family can enjoy. Break out the hairspray: Parents can take a trip back in time with '80s tribute bands playing all over the Spree.

Get there early on Sunday to worship with the community – Catholic or Protestant style – and/or stop by the all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast, which follows, for a bargain price of $4. Later that night, experience one of the highlights of this annual event – the fireworks display.

Also, throughout the fest, help support Livonia in an effort to give back to local volunteers graduating high school. These students are eligible to receive a $2,000 scholarship honoring past good works. And enjoy a petting farm, vendors and carnival rides each day.

General Spree carnival times are as follows:

  • Tuesday: 4-11 p.m.
  • Wednesday-Friday: 2-11 p.m.
  • Saturday-Sunday: noon-11 p.m.

Admission is free. Individual tickets and wristbands are available for purchase on site; wristbands are $22.
