Saturday was the kickoff of the Hamtramck Labor Day Festival.
The sun was hot and fierce with temps hovering above 90. That seemed to keep people away for the first few hours but by 3 o’clock the festival was beginning to fill up, and the beer and drinks began to flow.
If you are reading this before 10 p.m., be sure to head on down to Hamtown. There are still plenty of bands waiting to play and lots of fun rides for the kids.
Can’t make it today? That’s OK, the festival will be here on Sunday and Monday. On Monday, the annual Polish Day Parade steps off at 1:30 p.m.
Look for more photos tomorrow.
