There’s a huge birthday party starting in Detroit this weekend, and you and the family are invited! There will be food, games, prizes, dancing and more. The best part is that it’s free!

The YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit will turn 170, and they are celebrating with a big block party that everyone is invited to. Host Jason Carr spoke with Latitia McCree-Thomas about the upcoming event.

The party will be held Saturday, September 10 from noon to 5 p.m. at the Boll Family YMCA in downtown Detroit. All ages are welcome to this free event.

DJs will be playing and there will be dancing in the streets. You can also have fun in their video game truck or test your skills on a giant obstacle course. Other activities include a scavenger hunt, magicians, face painting and a corn hole. If you want to work out a little, there will also be yoga, Zumba and HITT classes, as well as basketball games.
