DETROIT (WXYZ) - Just a few more days until Christmas prompts shoppers to kick it into full gear. The holiday atmosphere is in full swing in downtown Detroit.
On the 1200 block of Woodward Avenue between Gratiot and Grand River, organizers hope to activate the streets of Detroit.
Retailers are playing host to shoppers, as the evening features live local bands, free food and drinks, as well as holiday deals from local vendors.
Visitors are asked to bring gently used jeans, coats, and other warm clothing to donate to Heart-2-Heart Detroit to help the homeless.
The block party lasts Friday from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
