Hit the road, Nain, and don’t you come back no more! Loyal Detroiters will unite Sunday to do their civic duty by driving the nasty Nain Rouge from the city for another year. The mythical red dwarf has been associated for centuries with doom and gloom in the D, and he’s both celebrated and scorned at the annual MARCHE DU NAIN ROUGE in Midtown. The festivities start at noon at the corner of Cass and Canfield. The parade down Cass kicks off at 1 p.m. and ends at the Masonic Temple, where the Nain will tease and taunt the pro-Detroit crowd before he’s banished.
The annual Marche du Nain Rouge attracts crowds dressed in garish Halloween wear, from a zebra costume to a box of candy, as well as fire twirlers, and a juggler.
