Things to Do in Ypsi This Weekend

Posted by ppna on June 13, 2008

Once again there is a lot to do in Ypsilanti this weekend.

Lady Sunshine & The X-Band on Washington Street as part of the Ypsilanti Crossroads Festival — In the event of Rain the event moves indoors to Club Divine.

Second Friday Business Night Downtown — I don’t know much about this event except that some businesses stay open late on the 2nd Friday of every month, I think there is a raffle of some sort. If you know what goes on please comment.

The Wurst of Ypsilanti –– A fund raiser for Rutherford Pool. The event kicks off at 4 pm and ends at 10 pm at the Crossroads Summer Festival Stage on Washington Street between Michigan Avenue and Pearl St. Tickets are $20 in advance (you can pick them up at the Crossroads Festival), $25 at the gate. Kids 12 and under are $5 anytime. The ticket price includes all you can eat sausages, bratwursts and side dishes. Lemonade and water are included.
