  • Grand Prix Street Circuit June Third 1985 Premium T-Shirt

    Nothing shows you’re a fan of the Detroit Grand Prix than sporting a shirt for it! I personally like the blue shirt of this 1985 Detroit Grand Prix t-shirt. Also, with this being the first year that the race is back in the streets of Downtown Detroit, I think the Street Circuit t-shirt is the perfect fit!

  • Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Water Resistant Broad Spectrum Sunscreen

    Being that the Grand Prix is always in the summer it’s definitely good practice to have sunscreen on you to protect yourself from skin damage. I really like this sunscreen because it’s travel size which makes it easy to put in your pocket, purse, fanny pack, backpack, stroller, or diaper bag without taking up too much room!

  • Sport Sun Visor for Men and Women

    On bright sunny days, I love wearing a hat or visor to help keep the sun out of my eyes. I really like visors though because sometimes the closed top of a baseball cap makes my head get too hot! Plus, a visor supports a high ponytail.

  • Loop Quiet Ear Plugs for Noise Reduction

    Races can get really loud, sometimes too loud for those who want to go to them. Just like at concerts, I highly suggest ear plugs if you’re noise or headache sensitive. These are reusable which means you can use them for your summer concerts too and they come in four different sizes so you can have a perfect fit.

  • 3 IN 1 Handheld Mini Fan, Portable USB Charger, and Flashlight

    I am the type of person who gets hot pretty easily so having a fan on hand (ha… see what I did there?) is a huge YES to me when going to outdoor events! What’s nice about this is you can use the fan to cool yourself off, recharge your phone’s battery from it, or use the flashlight to find your keys that fell to the bottom of your purse.

  • CHBP Women’s Polarized Sunglasses

    You can never have just one pair of sunglasses, right? I know I have a few different pair to choose from depending on my outfit of choice. With these polarized sunglasses, you can protect your eyes from the sun AND get three pairs to go with any outfit!

  • Large Crossbody Fanny Pack for Women and Men

    I absolutely HATE taking a purse to outdoor events… it’s a lot to keep track of and it can get in the way in big crowds but on the other hand, I need something to carry my phone, keys, wallet, and sunscreen. That’s why I suggest the crossbody fanny pack! It rests either across my waist or my chest and doesn’t get in the way or caught on anything all while carrying the items I need on my person for me.

  • 32oz Water Bottle with Straw and Strap

    We all know it’s important to stay hydrated, even more so when you’re at an outdoor event in the heat! If I am able to bring things like a water bottle to an event I like to bring a water bottle I don’t have to carry in my hand whether that’s hooking it to my fanny pack or carrying it like a purse.
