Along the Cass Corridor, on a graveled vacant lot shadowed by the Masonic Temple, between the Temple Bar and an old renovated fire station, the first ever Detroit Chicken Race was held. The event would see a flux of about 150 people over the course of an early Sunday evening, rolling into dusk.
The majority of the attendees were city dwellers, venturing from the surrounding neighborhoods of Midtown, Woodbridge, Corktown & Lafayette Park. Some were students, others Anarchists; urban farmers, artists and musicians; all there to take part in what I hope will become an annual tradition.
