Novi will be bustling with activity on Friday, May 19 at the Novi’s Spring Palooza located at the civic center campus. Formerly known as Spring into Novi, this is a fun event for all ages with lots of different activities. It’s a great way to get your kids involved in the community and to learn how this community is run.

This carnival-themed community party allows the community to interact with the people who work behind the scenes. How would your child like to climb inside a police car and fire truck? Or try on police or firefighter gear?

Clowns and live magicians will be strolling the grounds, performing. There will also be bounce houses, lawn games, laser tag, paintball, bubble soccer, corn hole games, bike races, and other carnival games to provide tons of entertainment. Hot dogs, chips, pizza, and other concessions will be available.

Live entertainment includes the DIA Mobile and Novi Concert Band. You will be able to finish your evening by staying to watch Disney’s Moana movie on the lawn starting at 8:30! In the event of bad weather, the Spring Palooza will be moved indoors to the civic center.
