Preparations were underway for the 40th Belle Isle New Year's Eve Fun Run when we visited today. The Casino, designed by Van Leyen & Schilling (thanks to an eagle-eyed reader for the correction) in 1907, was the site for registration and the start of the race. I love the view of downtown's skyline in the distance.
We didn't stay for the race (we had our own personal fun run and other afternoon events planned), but we did take a walk through the interior, noticing some of the ornate details.
Hats off to the runners and walkers who participated in the Fun Run! Maybe next year I will be more ambitious and join you!
