Eastern Market After Dark

Eastern Market After Dark is becoming an annual outing and I couldn't be happier. There's just something about exploring a city at night; there’s so much to do and see, especially when you find yourself surrounded by art galleries, food trucks, and people. 

The AIA Detroit Celebration of Art Fashion Show was lit up with LED lights, from the models outfits to the sporadic lighting in the shed. It was truly an architecture-inspired fashion show.

The shed outside was filled with food trucks, performers, and giant swings. They’re called the L’Arramee Sail Swings by Laavu Studio and were developed to recreate the childhood experience of swinging—the sail even create a ‘whoosh’ sound! I had time to stop by my favorite food truck, Treat Dreams, and tried out a new flavor called Batman, salted caramel and dark chocolate (my new favorite).

We wanted to stop by Red Bull House of Art, but we arrived just as it was closing…it was a bit disheartening, but I do know they have a lot of events throughout the year, so I’ll be going back soon. We did, however, get to see the graffiti along the walls of Winder Street and some of the street performers again! On the way back, we stopped at the Detroit vs. Everybody store to check out the merchandise.

By far, my favorite part of the time were the L’Arramee swings. Who knows, maybe this time next year, I’ll be on the other side of the EMAD experience as a volunteer.
