DETROIT -- While the action on the track will be fast and furious at the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix, May 31-June 2, there will be plenty of activities for fans of all ages to enjoy throughout the weekend off the track at the Meijer Family Fun Zone.

Located inside the Raceway at Belle Isle Park venue over the Chevrolet Bridge, the Meijer Family Fun Zone will once again feature music, entertainment, games, interactive displays and activities for children and adults alike.

The Meijer area within the Family Fun Zone will feature a Radio Disney interactive display including slot car racing, face painting and caricature drawing.

New to the Fun Zone this year is the Quicken Loans Go-Kart track. Fans ages 14 and older will get an opportunity to do a little racing of their own while their favorite drivers test the new Belle Isle street circuit during the "Fastest Weekend of the Summer" in the Motor City.

Several Detroit sports teams will be featured in the Meijer Family Fun Zone, including the Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Pistons, as they will include inflatables and interactive games in their displays. A Pistons legend will appear in the Meijer Family Fun Zone on Friday while a Red Wings legend will be in the zone on Sunday.

Car enthusiasts will enjoy all the vehicles on display in the Chevrolet area, located near the entrance to the Family Fun Zone. Team Chevy will feature a performance transporter, a military display and an IZOD IndyCar Series and "Turbo" car transporter. Interviews with Team Chevy drivers will also be hosted on stage throughout race weekend.

The MotorCity Casino Hotel Entertainment Stage will be rocking through all three days of the Grand Prix in the Fun Zone. Detroit's own R&B sensation Dwele will headline the acts on Friday, May 31 when he performs at 5:30 p.m, while Poison lead singer Bret Michaels will rock the stage on Saturday, June 1 at 6:00 p.m. On Sunday, June 2, the modern-rock band Plain White T's will play a matinee show at 2:00 p.m. before the second of the two Chevrolet Indy Dual in Detroit races presented by Quicken Loans.

The INDYCAR Fan village will also be located within the Meijer Family Fun Zone and will include unique displays and interactive games highlighting the stars of the IZOD IndyCar Series.
IndyCar drivers will sign autographs in the Fan Village display on Sunday, June 2 from 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. GRAND-AM Rolex Series drivers will also host an autograph session in the Fun Zone on Saturday, June 1 from 10:00 am-10:45 a.m., before they take to the track for their race. The Pirelli World Challenge drivers will sign for fans near the Optimum Battery Trailer on Sunday, June 2 from 10:00 a.m-11:00 a.m. Located near the Optimum Batter Trailer is the Cars.com charging station which will allow fans a chance to charge their electronics and mobile devices during race weekend.

The Pirelli Tire display area will include four racing simulators for fans to compete on as well as an actual Formula One race car on display.

Fans can also learn more about the new animated movie "Turbo," featuring a snail that chases his dream of racing in the Indianapolis 500 when they visit the Turbo display area.

There will also be plenty of food and beverages to enjoy in the Meijer Family Fun Zone including the Andiamo Food Court, Tim Horton's food truck and Chicken Shack. Adding beauty to the area will be the Pirelli Girls and the FOX Sports Detroit Girls.

"The Meijer Family Fun Zone will give fans of all ages an opportunity to enjoy so many great activities at the Grand Prix," said Bud Denker, Chairman of the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix. "We have always said this event is much more than just great racing, and in Meijer Family Fun Zone, fans can experience terrific entertainment, games, food and fun all weekend long."

All fans can access the Meijer Family Fun Zone which will be open from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. each day during the Grand Prix.
