Come See Us at River Days!

Click for RiverDays website
The New Detroit RiverWalk is open & the Friends of BIA will be there!

We're still swimming! Come downtown and see the Friends of Belle Isle Aquarium at our booth at the Detroit International River Days presented and organized by General Motors, the Parade Company and Detroit RiverFront Conservancy. We'll be featured at the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) Green Days tent on Sunday, June 24th and Monday, June 25th, 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 Green Days 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!

River Days is a first-ever festival taking place on the new Detroit International Riverfront culminating with the Parade Company-produced Target Fireworks. Visit www.detroitriverdays.com/medc.html for information on Green Days events and www.detroitriverdays.com for details on the overall event.

Volunteers are needed to staff our Friends of BIA booth. If you are interested please contact Diane Stiller at 313.832.1058 or dianestiller@sbcglobal.net no later than Thursday, June 21. Thanks!
