DETROIT — The birds are chirping. The hot dogs are sizzling. And the smell of elephant ears wafts over the sound of laughter as young and old friends catch up on a sunny afternoon after a long Michigan winter.
It's parish festival season in Metro Detroit.
For many years, Catholics across the region relied upon The Michigan Catholic newspaper's “Big List” of parish festivals as a guide to summer Catholic fun. This year, Detroit Catholic is taking up that tradition once again to provide readers with a list of summer “hot spots” at parishes across the region.
We rely on parishes to tell us their festival details; if you see a festival that's missing, let us know the details here.
