Event Description

Huron River Day is an annual celebration of the Huron River held by Ann Arbor Parks at Gallup Park. Starting in 2018, Huron River Day moved from its traditional July date to May.

My daughter and I had a great time at the 2018 Huron River Day. She loved kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, and the other activities.
