There will also be face painting, balloon animals and temporary tattoos available.

The Royal Oak High School Dance Team will show up with spirit to share their jazz, hip hop, high kick and pom routines, while the award-winning troupe Motor City Irish Dance is ready to show off their best Irish step dancing and teach some moves to the audience as well. Is that all? Far from it. The Detroit Dog Rescue will also be on site with some pups looking for a family to go home with.
