Downtown Northville brings oversized games to Town Square for the summer

Games In Town Square
Visit downtown Northville to “get your game on” with these oversized games in Town Square.
For those who enjoy playing Jenga, Corn Hole, Dominos or Connect 4 and like being outdoors during the summer, visit downtown Northville to “get your game on” with these newly made oversized games.

Sponsored by the Northville Downtown Development Authority (DDA) and The Village Workshop, the games are available in Town Square (on Main Street across from the clock). There is no cost or registration required to play the games, which are set up daily from 7 a.m. - 9 p.m.
 
“The oversized games were created to provide a fun family activity in Town Square and give residents and visitors another reason to visit Town Square,” said Lori Ward, Northville DDA director. “It is also a creative way to show the capabilities of The Village Workshop and opportunities available for artisans and creatives at the makerspace.”

Five volunteers, including one staff member from The Village Workshop, built the game boards and pieces. The 28 Domino tiles are 11.5” x 5.5”; the 54 Jenga bars measure 10” x 3.5”; the Connect 4 game is 50” x 50” and the Corn Hole game is 24” x 48.”

Town Square serves as a central gathering space in Downtown Northville, hosting concerts on Friday nights and kids concerts on Tuesday mornings in the summer and other events throughout the year. The open-air patio is beautifully landscaped and equipped for concerts with a music system and stage. The area also has free WiFi. Overhead Tivoli lighting in the evenings creates a festive and welcoming ambiance.
