Corktown Aglow

Emily Berger
The holidays are sweeping through one of Detroit’s most popular destination neighborhoods a wee bit early this year, thanks to the fourth annual Corktown Aglow. The single-day, family-friendly celebration invites folks to take advantage of discounts and specials offered by Corktown’s independent retailers, restaurants, and bars — with free shuttles to make shopping easier. Kicking off the event is the kids holiday party hosted by Detroit PAL, where tots can hang with Detroit Pistons mascot Hooper, as well as make some holiday crafts and make some photo booth memories. The annual holiday block party, which takes place from 4-10 p.m. near Bagley Street and Trumbull Avenue, will offer free carriage rides, hot cocoa, and marshmallow roasting, and the annual tree lighting with Detroit singer Bevlove. Visitors are also encouraged to donate new unwrapped toys, socks, blankets, coats, and sweaters for the annual “Stuff a Cop Car” gift drive, which will provide families in need with winter and holiday essentials.
