The city of Sterling Heights announces the rollout of a collection of signature events and amenities for the remainder of 2021.
Labeled “Break-Free Blast,” these events and activities are designed for all ages and interests, providing something every resident can enjoy. All activities will be conducted based on current public health guidelines at the time they occur.
“Although there are still protocols we’ll need to continue following to keep our community safe, the magnitude of vaccinations being administered every day in our community, coupled with the warming weather, is giving us hope for getting back to fun gatherings and activities very soon,” said Sterling Heights Mayor Michael Taylor. “I’m incredibly proud of the way our community has come together over the past year. It really is something worth celebrating, and this is one way of giving our residents something they can look forward to - a bit of an escape from the last 12 months of closures, cancellations and isolation.”
Break-Free Blast events include:
In addition to scheduled signature events, Break-Free Blast includes multiple seasonal amenities offering the opportunity to walk/run, skate, pedal, paddle or splash. The Sterling Heights Splash Pad is scheduled to be open Memorial Day through Labor Day. Residents and visitors can canoe or kayak the Clinton River from April to October. The Sterling Heights ice rink is open early December to early March, and our skate park and connected public trail system, including respite locations and bike repair stations, are open all year long.
“Break-Free Blast is a way to capture the hope and anticipation of getting back outside and returning to a bit of normalcy,” said Community Relations Director Melanie Davis. “Inside Break-Free Blast is something for everyone – all ages, all interests and from the serious athlete to the casual dog walker and everything in between. We are excited to share these signature events and activities with our community, and we hope they offer our residents a bit of a light at the end of what has been a very long tunnel.”
Additional details about all Break-Free Blast events will be shared as they become available on the City’s website at sterling-heights.net and the City’s other communication channels including SHTV, social media and the City News e-mail. For more information, call (586) 446-CITY (2489).
