Driving Out the Nain Rouge in Detroit

DETROIT (AP) -- It's time once again to drive an evil spirit from Detroit.

Hundreds of revelers are expected to gather in the city on Sunday for the annual Le Marche du Nain Rouge.

The event features masked and costumed participants taking to Detroit's streets to banish the folkloric "Nain Rouge," or "red dwarf," and save the city from its woes.

The lighthearted Marche comes as Detroit continues to wind its way through bankruptcy.

A 5K run called the Run du Nain Rouge is planned for earlier on Sunday.
