Important Notices

Lib Day/Hempapalooza this year will coincide with a Detroit Tigers game against Cleveland at Comerica Park just 1 block away!  This will make some things tougher, such as parking, and some things easier, such as making new friends and educating others.

 

But please remember at all times that a Tigers game means more kids will be there.  Please make your best effort to show the un-”Cannabissed” world that we are good, polite, non-threatening people.  Or you will be asked to leave the park.

Lib Day/Hempapalooza IS NOT A SMOKE-IN.  We have invited the local police to our event, and we have our own “deputized” Peace Officers who will ask anyone trading, displaying, selling or using illegal substances to leave the park.  Period.  This is not up for discussion or vote.  This is a public event.
