Scenes from Ann Arbor's 2013 African American Downtown Festival

By Daniel Brenner

The annual African American Downtown Festival returned to the area around Fourth Avenue and Ann Street on Saturday.

The event celebrates African-American culture, and it takes place in the location of Ann Arbor's historic African-American business district. Food, live entertainment, information and vendor booths, and activities for kids are all part of the fun.

Photographer Daniel Brenner captured these images. The festival continues through 9 p.m. Saturday and admission is free; for more information, see the preview article.

I was in the area of the festival around 10pm last night and the amount of trash on the ground was appalling. Even the vendors just left piles of trash where their stalls were. What's that about? I hope the Taste of A2 organizers have more receptacles...and respect.

Looks like it was tons of fun. Best wishes on next years event.
