Today's the last day for Showcase D'Holidays at Campus Martius Park


Last week we spoke with Bob Gregory, president of Campus Martius Park, about all the holiday offerings at CMP this season. This year there's shopping at CityLoft, designer snowmen, carriage rides, street performers, and even a rink-side bar. 

While the street performers and carriage rides will continue until Dec. 28 tonight is the last night for Showcase D'Holidays,  the musical portion of the park's seasonal offerings. Music starts at 4 p.m. with carolers from the Oakland University Chorale (they return to perform at 6 p.m. as well). Alyssa Simmons will perform at 5 p.m., Call Marvin goes on at 7 p.m., Half Light Music plays at 8:45 p.m., and Amp Fiddler finishes up the evening at 10:30 p.m. 

In case the kiddies haven't made the trip to the mall yet, Santa will be there, too. For more info check
