Did you know that the Nain Rouge has been a harbinger of doom since the time of Detroit’s founding? Each year they hold a parade in the Cass Corridor to trick the Nain with our terrible French … and costumes. Groups of people join together to throw this huge ball/parade. They build these human-powered floats, perform music and coordinate themed costumes that represent their Detroit neighborhoods together.
