Well readers, the weekend is almost here. You know what that means right?

This City 5 round up for what to do this weekend in Detroit is here.

There are a lot of great events happening this weekend, and none of them involve cars or cruising.

Ford Fun Free Day at the Michigan Science Center 

If you haven’t listened to the They Might Be Giants album called Here Comes Science I suggest you do. We listen to it a lot in my house, because Science Is Real.

Anyway, this Saturday the Michigan Science Center will have free admission thanks to a generous contribution by Ford.

If you plan on heading down to the MSC be sure to sign up for tickets for a specific time of day. This helps with the flow of traffic through the science center.

The Michigan Science Center will be open from 10 a.m. — 6 p.m.

The MSC is located at 5020 John R Street in Detroit.

World Honey Bee Day at the DNR Outdoor Adventure Center 

Bees are some fascinating creatures. If you have ever wanted to learn more about the life cycle of the honey bee then you should go to the DNR Outdoor Adventure Center.

Brian Peterson-Roest from Bees in the “D” will be speaking.

Attendees will become a member of a honey bee hive and learn about the lives of a honey bee.

This event would be great for adults and kids.

The program starts at 1 p.m.

The DNR Outdoor Activity Center is located at 1801 Atwater Street in Detroit.

Friday through Sunday 11 a.m.-11 p.m.

Motor City Soul Club August Soul Stomp

You don’t think we wouldn’t include our favorite monthly soul party would you?

This month they are doing things a bit differently. They will have eight DJ’s throughout Saturday night. Four DJ’s inside the Marble Bar and four DJ’s on the back patio.

The Soul Stomp is always free, which is a great deal. Hours are from 10 p.m.-1 a.m., so you get three hours of making your dancing shoes work like they’ve never worked before.

The Marble Bar is located at 1501 Holden Street in Detroit.
