Jimmy Buffett brings the Lounging at the Lagoon Tour to Detroit this weekend, playing a show at Comerica Park. It was announced today that promoters will host a day-long beach party downtown:

“It’s a simple formula: It’s about having fun,” says Lee Rifield of promoter Olympia Entertainment. “We’re really trying to create that environment Jimmy Buffett wants to be in.”

Among the frills at the pre-show party, which starts at 10 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot just north of Comerica Park:

• A 1,600-square-foot sand island with a tiki bar serving margaritas, along with a sand-diving game where contestants will turn up buried salt shakers redeemable for prizes.

• A sand beach with a stage featuring local bands Toast & Jam and Square Pegz.

• A beer tent serving Land Shark Premium Lager, the house beer for Buffett’s Margaritaville restaurant chain.

• A Ferris wheel, midway games, misting stations, a photo lounge and an appearance by Land Shark’s FinMobile.

The lot, which recently hosted the main stage of the Downtown Hoedown, has a capacity of about 10,000.
