just north of Rivard Plaza which is east of the
RenCen. We're right next to the Family FUN Zone.
Park in garages around the RenCen and take the
RiverWalk east to Rivard. The
hours are Sunday and Monday from 10 am - 10 pm.
You can get the latest
information on what we've been doing to reopen
the aquarium. Get a colorful BIA t-shirt, get
your picture taken with Gramps the Giant Gourami
and/or the Electric Eel, make a fish stick, get
a balloon and a bookmark, buy some aquarium
specialty jewelry, tell us your memories of the
Aquarium, and much more. Supporting Detroit's
river goes hand in hand with supporting its
renowned Aquarium. Show your support. Come to
River Days. We can't wait to meet you!

festival taking place on the new Detroit
International Riverfront culminating with the
Parade Company-produced Target Fireworks. Visit
