I was so disappointed when I went to Belle Isle to find that they are already setting up for the Grand Prix, which I think is June 3rd and 4th. The grandstands were in several locations getting in the way of my photos....ha! The road was lined with concrete bunkers and fencing...ugh! A woman at the conservatory said they start setting up 2 month before the race. I know 2 years ago when my granddaughter was visiting we went on June 15 and things were still up. We couldn't get to the fountain. Half the summer gone. Anyway, so nice to see so many people visiting the park.
