DETROIT (WWJ) – Kids played hopscotch in Detroit Saturday as part of Arise Detroit’s Neighborhoods Day.
Chalk art and hopscotch were part of the fun held at Mike’s Market at Livernois & Seven Mile in Detroit.
WWJ’s Beth Fisher spoke with 12-year-old Del’Vonta Brown.
“I just like hopping around cause when you hop around, it’s tricky cause you gotta take your time and there was so many of em,” said Brown.
Eleven-year-old Desiree Henderson tells WWJ she’s been playing hopscotch for a couple of years and loves it.
“You need to make sure you have your feet at the right angle … going the right way,” said Henderson.
The kids also used sidewalk chalk to create art in the parking lot of Mike’s Market at Livernois and 7 Mile roads.
Saturday’s game of hopscotch is a prelude to September 22, the day these kids and other Detroiters will attempt to create the world’s longest hopscotch game.
