Three New Legends Coming to the Plaza!

On Saturday, April 20, three Detroit legends cast their hand in cement live at the Detroit Historical Museum as part of the annual City of Champions Day celebration. 

Greg Kelser, sports analyst and Detroit Pistons broadcaster, Huel Perkins, Emmy Award-Winning former Fox 2 news anchor, and Mickey Redmond, Detroit Red Wings color commentator set their hands and signatures into wet cement in front of museum visitors in the Streets of Old Detroit. The day also included a live podcast from the museum's auditorium and a historical presentation by Detroit Historical Society Director of Collections Jeremy Dimick on the significance of the 1935-36 season, when all of Detroit's major sports teams won championships.

The three sets of handprints will be the newest additions to the museum's Legends Plaza, a local "walk of fame" that honors notable Detroiters. They'll be unveiled at our May 11 Detroit Historical Society Ball - and you can join us to celebate! Mingle with some of Detroit’s brightest stars and enjoy a special ceremony honoring this year’s Detroit Legends. The festive evening will also feature a strolling dinner, open bar, silent auction, historical actors, and live entertainment. Find more information and buy tickets here!
