DETROIT (WWJ) – President Obama will be in Detroit on Monday.  The White House says Mr. Obama will be in town to celebrate Labor Day with workers and their families as well as to discuss his bipartisan efforts to create jobs and strengthen the nation’s economy.

The president’s visit is free and open to the public.  His address is set for 1:00 Monday afternoon, just east of the Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit.

Aretha Franklin will perform following the annual Labor Day parade … and before Mr. Obama takes the stage.

If you’re interested in going, you will not need a ticket to get in, although some have been distributed.
