Looks like it was a great time for all involved.
WXYZ didn't cover what Mayor Bing had to say, but WWJ did.
“I’ll tell you my heart is pumping. I feel like it’s the seventh game in the playoffs,” said Bing. “To see all these people out here; with the love, the with excitement, with the pride — it does so much for the city.”In addition to all the dignitaries named in previous installments, the Whole Foods Market Detroit Facebook page posted photos of former Detroit Piston John Salley. It turns out that Salley is one of the owners of Vegan Vine Wines, which is being sold at the Detroit Whole Foods, and he was giving out samples. Here's Salley promoting himself and his brand of wine on YouTube.
“I’d have to say, without a doubt, it’s probably the best day … because the community is involved,” the mayor said.
