Erik Nordin talks Noel Night and Detroit Design Center

In its 42nd year and produced by Midtown Detroit, Noel Night will feature more than 70 arts and cultural institutions, galleries, historic churches and small businesses, performances, horse-drawn carriage rides and carolers in the Midtown area. In a typical year, attendees bundle up and wander from venue to venue, most of which are in the vicinity of Wayne State University or what is known as the Cultural Center. Participants include some of the city's biggest cultural names such as the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History and many lesser-known groups or small businesses. It runs 5-10 p.m. Saturday, and is bounded by Ferry Street to the north, Edmund Place to the south, St. Antoine to the east and Anthony Wayne to the west. At the Wayne State University School of Business, the Prentis Fishbowl will serve as a warming station where cider and cookies will be served and Christmas music will be played, 6-9 p.m.
