Come out and celebrate Detroit’s 313th birthday at The Detroit Historical Society’s Streets of Old Detroit exhibit. Groups will work together as historical detectives in a game involving puzzles, questions and learning about the buildings and features within the exhibit modeled after 19th century Detroit. They will also be giving out special birthday treats throughout the day. The birthday festivities will go from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Tomorrow night, the sweet indie pop melodies of this Scottish five-piece will be floating through the Loving Touch. . With ease, front woman Tracyanne Campbell’s smooth, candied vocals and wry Scottish story telling illustrate the challenges of life. Themes often circle around heartbreak, a common thread running through their recent album Desire Lines, released June 4. The album title nods to life’s uncommon paths that are marked by wear, not by signs; the paths our feet choose naturally. Forging its own desire lines, Camera Obscura’s unconventional style is well off the beaten path.
Get naked! Well, almost naked. Strip on down to your skivvies and head over to the Tangent Gallery this Thursday night for a summer night bike ride, complete with g-strings, brews, neon body paint, glitter and a bunch of rowdy companions. “It’s more than a party. It’s a movement.” Celebrate urban cycling and that hot bod of yours by scooting around Detroit with a bunch of nearly naked strangers. After the ride, there will be cold drinks and hot tunes to shake your ass to. Ride starts at 8:30 p.m.
Every other year, the Puppeteers of America hosts festivals that bring the best and brightest puppeteers to the region. This year's Great Lakes Regional Puppetry Festival comes to Detroit, bringing three days of award-winning shows to the DIA. It all kicks off with the award-winning The Snowflake Man by puppeteer Sarah Frechette (aka Penny Pup from the children's TV show SeeMore's Playhouse), which takes a look at the life of photographer W.A. Bentley with hand-carved traditional Czech marionettes and watercolor paintings. The Snowflake Man plays at 3:30 p.m. at 5200 Woodward Avenue, Detroit; 313-833-7900; dia.org. Check the dia.org for the full schedule. The puppet shows are free with museum admission (and free for residents of Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties).
Come out and enjoy a night of kings and queens, princesses and duels at the Redford Theaters showing of the 1987 classic, The Princess Bride. This PG rated film is full of hilarity and romance from beginning to end and will spice up any average summer night. Don’t forget to hit the concession stand, which prices are distinctly low and the popcorn is always delicious.
Keith Fields is a trickster. This Brit is known for fooling people as he makes them laugh. And now, living in the U.S., his tricks are reaching a whole new audience.

Hell, he once had Robin Williams as his opening act. You can’t get more official than that.
