Black Friday Family Activities in Southeast MI

Black Friday Family Activities in Southeast MI – Goldfish Swim Schools of Metro Detroit has some great ideas for post Thanksgiving family time fun!

Thanksgiving brings mixed feelings for moms. In our minds lives the hope of a Norman Rockwell holiday. This picturesque scene includes family reunited, warm hugs, food from recipes that have been passed down for generations, and an overall sense of gratitude, comfort, and love for all mankind. Our good intentions to create the “perfect” holiday scene are quickly gobbled up by chaotic schedules, poor eating habits, materialism and buyers remorse.

This year, instead of abandoning your family for hours of shopping while getting elbowed in the face, skip the consumerism sensation and engage in a family activity – perhaps even a new family tradition.

1 – Thankful Friday Family Swim Event at Goldfish Swim School – November 27 from 6:30-8:00pm.
Join Goldfish Swim School, with seven locations throughout southeast MI, for a fun-filled family night. Splash around in their 90-degree pools and state-of-the-art facilities to burn some of those Thanksgiving calories and energize your family at the start of this holiday season.

There will be open swim, crafts, raffles and snacks. Just in case you still feel the need for a taste of Black Friday Deals, they are also offering a free bucket of swim goodies valued at $100 with 2-months enrollment in swim lessons.

The cost varies per location and is a maximum of $15 for the whole family. Many locations are offering free admission if you bring a canned good for donation. Check their website to learn more and don’t forget to call Friday morning to register as space will be limited. Learn more at

2 – Go Up North, Downtown! – Visit Michigan DNR’s Outdoor Adventure Center (OAC) located on Detroit’s riverfront in the historic Globe Building. Open November 27 from 10:00am – 3:00pm. Admission is only $5 for adults, $3 for kids 2-12, and free for children under age 2.

Experience exciting outdoor adventures with hands-on activities, exhibits and simulators — walk behind and touch a waterfall, step into a fishing boat and reel in a big fish, hit the trail on a mountain bike or snowmobile, and much more. At the OAC, you’ll learn about how the DNR manages state parks, forests, wildlife and fish as you climb the roots and explore the canopy of a massive bur oak tree, hop aboard a real airplane, and see what’s swimming in the aquarium. Step inside a yurt, have a seat by the campfire, and meet Michigan’s majestic elk! Learn more at this Michigan DNR webpage.

Closing thought… “In the end, kids won’t remember the fancy toy or game you bought them. They will remember the time you spent with them.” – Kevin Heath
