DETROIT (AP) -

Some Detroit businesses are offering discounts leading up to this weekend's annual Marche du Nain Rouge.  

The tradition features masked and costumed revelers taking to Detroit's streets to banish the folkloric "nain rouge," or "red dwarf," and save the city from its woes.

This year's Marche will be held on Sunday.

It begins with a 5K run, called the Run du Nain Rouge. It's being organized by Tour de Troit.

The discounts and specials being offered this week by retailers and restaurants include 10 percent off all standard bicycle tuneups at The Hub of Detroit; "The Effigy Pizza" at Motor City Brewing Works and a discount on Detroit almanacs at Source Booksellers.

    It is time to start thinking about sending young adults off to college, and while dorm rooms and apartments are often small, they can still have style.

    It's not just the styles that have changed with weddings over the years -- it's also the technology. Disposable cameras used to be the norm, but now there's an even simpler way for the bride and groom to get some candid photos of their special day.
