3 things to do in Windsor-Essex this weekend

Spring is officially here, but people in Windsor are still waiting for the weather to change.

Spring is officially here, but people in Windsor are still waiting for the weather to change.

However, a sure sign of spring is the start of baseball season. Also on the line-up of things to do: an event called North American Bicycle Week, and a fashion show and sale on Pelissier St.

CBC's Mike Evans tells us about the best things to do on the weekend.

1. Bike Week

The North American Bicycle Week takes place in Detroit. In recent years Detroit has become a mecca for cycling.

Some say biking is the best way to take in the city of Detroit.

There are events geared at biking throughout Detroit, culminating Saturday with the Bike City Expo taking place at the Cobo Centre.  There will be over 100 venders, a BMX show, a bike swing and more at the Expo.

That event runs from 10 till 6pm on Saturday.

3. Tiger's Home opener

And it's technically not a weekend event, but many people in Windsor will be taking Monday off for the Detroit Tigers opening day game.

Tactics for having fun on opening day include: taking the shuttle bus from Windsor to Detroit, getting to the park early, and opting for the standing room section, which allows you to wander around and enjoy the festive atmosphere of opening day.

3. Art Show

On Saturday and Sunday Windsor fashion designer Ana Stulic is opening up her Pellissier St studio to the public.  It'll be open from 11 a.m. till 8 at night and again on Sunday from noon till 6 p.m.  

Stulic has set up shop in the basement of the Chelsea Building, which is the old YMCA on Pelissier.

Stulic took over the entire basement of that building and has turned it into a fashion design workshop.

There will be a catwalk show to show off her new collection and you can buy other items like jewelry and accessories.

This area of Pelissier Street is getting a reputation as an arts district. Stulic adds to that, having recently returned to Windsor from stints in Toronto, Montreal and Berlin.

This show is a way to engage Windsorites and make them aware of some really interesting things happening right under their noses.
