On March 31, Detroit Home Opener Festival takes over the Madison Avenue Festival Grounds with the Detroit Home Opener Festival, a block party celebrating the opening day of the baseball season. Starting at 9 a.m. and going into the night, fans can converge in heated tents where bartenders pour beer and mix cocktails. After grabbing their drinks, they can head outdoors for a food-truck rally and other entertainment. Block partiers can play festival games or pitch balls at a dunk tank, wherein Home Opener girls sit precariously above cold water. Meanwhile, a hot-dog-eating contest keeps eaters satiated, and live bands and local DJs entertain crowds with games of vinyl frisbee.
