Novi, MI events April 2018

Spring is finally here - at least in name - and Novi has an array of fun community events to both fill those rainy spring weekends or nights and bring you outside a bit to enjoy the season warming up. There’s something here for everyone - adults, kids, families, and seniors.

They say Euchre is a Michigan game. If so, Michigan is a genius because this game never gets old.
