1. Representatives for both presidential candidates have been hitting Michigan pretty hard this week. Now Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton will be at a “Get Out the Vote” rally in Detroit Friday.

Clinton will be laying out her plans for creating an economy that works for everyone, not just the nation’s wealthiest.

The event will be at the Eastern Market Shed 3. The doors open at 3:15 p.m. and the rally starts at 5:15 p.m.

2. With the World Series complete, we can turn our attention to other sports like basketball.

Thursday night, basketball players ran up and down the court on four hooves. There was a game of Donkey Basketball at Ravenna High school as part of a fundraiser to raise money for local food pantries and Ravenna High School’s Future Farmers of America Club.

Donkeys are known to be stubborn animals, so it provided a lot of entertainment.

The event raised more than $3000.

3. If hitting the slopes if more your thing, it’s a great time to grab some gear at Cannonsburg.

Cannonsburg is hosting their 45th annual Ski and Board Swap. They’ll have new and lightly used skis, snowboards, clothes, and more at big discounts.

The sale runs from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and proceeds will benefit non-profit ski patrols.

4. It’s a festival celebrating everything bacon and beer, BaCon.

Local restaurants and breweries will be cooking up dishes with bacon, competing to see who has the best dish.

The best part of the festival? You get to taste test all of them!

Tickets cost $20 and come with 10 sample tickets, or you can upgrade to the Bacon Master Package for $40 and get 20 sample tickets.

The event goes from 3 to 8 p.m. at the DeltaPlex Arena. But tickets here.

5. Thousands, if not millions of Cubs fans are expected to line the streets of Chicago for a victory parade following the team’s historic World Series win Friday morning.

The celebration is set to begin at 10 a.m. when the team leaves Wrigley Field, with the actual parade starting at 11 a.m.

The parade will travel along Michigan Avenue and then onto Columbus Drive.

Everything wraps up with a big rally in Grant Park at 12 p.m.

The Cubs Victory in Game 7 broke a 108-year drought.
