Metro Times: A chat with Detroit’s little red devil

Posted on

Red Dwarf

Read the full article and interview published by the Detroit Metro Times.

For 300 years Detroit has blamed its woes on a red dwarf named Le Nain Rouge. The crimson figure is said to be the harbinger of bad, the destructive force behind all that goes wrong in the city. So, for the past few years in the spring Detroiters hold a parade that keeps him at bay for the year to come. Because what better way to rid ourselves of a mythological beast?

With the city seeing a revival, we thought we’d chat with Le Nain Rouge about whether this annual cavalcade has been keeping him from his ghastly deeds or if the renaissance is all part of his evil plans.

Marche du Nain Rouge starts at 1 p.m. Sunday, March 22; the parade begins on the corner of West Canfield Street and Second Avenue, across from Traffic Jam & Snug. For the details visit
