Photos taken Christmas Eve December 24, 2011

Campus Martius Park in Downtown Detroit not only has the Official City Christmas Tree perched ontop of the fountain, it also has an ice rink for skating fun all winter long. Each Chritsmas Eve there is a great crowd.  Campus Martius is an great urban space in the center of the city business district, and literally in the center of Woodward Avenue. It is perfectly situated to host this special night with all the lights, music, skating, and people in the holiday spirit. Surrounding the ice rink are warming stations with open fires, although I did not see any chestnuts roasting….but there are usually people making S’mores.

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
