Van Dyke said 3,000 people attended last year's Marche du Nain Rouge, a custom from the 18th century that was revived in 2010.

He said the event is aimed at raising the spirits of Detroit residents, who are encouraged to "have fun with it," The Detroit News reported.

"It's open for everybody's interpretation," he said. "The main point is to celebrate the good things in Detroit, banish the bad and start anew. It's all positive."
